Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate the results of your HIV antibody test, or if a HIV viral load test was obtained. You can't estimate a viral load test result from the blood cell counts you have. It requires a specific test for that. Assuming that you have HIV infection, then these numbers indicate a reduced CD4 count and percent from the normal range.
