Absolute CD8+ Lymphocyte count.
Sep 16, 2012
I had my tests done around 6 months ago and the Absolute CD8+ Lymphocyte count was 822 and after 6 months again i did a test and the Absolute CD8+ Lymphocyte count was 631. What does this mean and is it good or bad?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Assuming you are HIV infected, you don't indicate what your CD4 count and percent is, or what your CD8 percent is, and whether you are on HIV treatment or not. Thus, it is difficult to determine whether this is a real change or not.
