Response from Dr. Holodniy

You dont' indicate what your viral load is. Assuming it is undetectable, then I would not be concerned. You likely need a third test result to see what the trend is. In general, the CD4 count can vary much more so than the CD4 percent. In your case, both are varying for unexplained reasons.
