meaning of lab numbers

Nov 3, 2012

CD4 18, CD3 88 and CD8 is 70?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You dont' indicate whether these are cell counts or percent. They look like t lymphocyte percent values. The CD4 value is low and the CD8 value is high. You also don't indicate what the HIV viral load level is or whether you are on HIV treatment or not, and whether these values have changed at all.
