|CD4% What does the % Mean
Feb 17, 2008
I've noticed the use of a % number after some of the CD4 lab results posted here. I only get the less than 50 and currently CD4 at 738. What is this percent number? Thank you.

The CD4% is the percentage of lymphocytes that are CD4+. The CD4 percent is a more stable number over time compared to the absolute CD4 count. It would be a good additional number for you to have and follow.
