CD4 count up , Percentage dropped

Aug 14, 2011

My CD4 count 16 weeks ago was 1308 and percentage was 53% . I just received my results from this weeks test and my CD4 count is up to 1340 however the percentage dropped to 50%. Everything I am reading states that the percentage should remain stable, and now I am concerned that I dropped 3% in just 16 weeks. Should I be concerned?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not be concerned. That change is still within the margin of error.
