How is CD4 count calculated?

Apr 5, 2009

Hello - I received my lab results from a new facility and this facility does not provide the CD4 count. I know it can be calculated, but I am struggling with the components of the equation. Any help appreciated!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

What numbers were you given? That seems impossible that you are not receiving at least an absolute CD4 count.
