cd4% 18 cd4 count 670
Oct 5, 2013

I am just confused how my CD4% can be low 18% and the count 670 which is within normal. My segmented are 22% lymphocytes 61%, leucocytic count 6200. haven't had a VL test yet as I'm in egypt and worried about confidential testing. Are my values worrisome? should I start HAART?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although your CD4 count is in the normal range, your CD4 percent is significantly decreased, and with a CD4 count of 670 should be in the 30-50% range. A viral load test could be helpful, and will likely be positive at some level. But given the CD4 percent, I would recommend starting HIV treatment.
