total lymphocyte count
Oct 21, 2006
Recent lab work came back and indicated a TLC of 1100, but a cd4 % of 52%. Reserch shows that a total lymphocyte count under 1200 can be used as a marker to start to meds, but with a cd4 % of 52, my cd4 count is 550+/-. Have you heard of a a low TLC but high cd4 %?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Yes, this can happen, but I don't think I would recommend starting HIV meds.
