Dischordance... Blip or What?

Mar 23, 2014

After five years my I just got my most recent lab results and the CD4 percentage is the highest its ever been, yet my absolute count is at its lowest. Not on any treatment and very confused. Don't know what to make of it. Any thoughts?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what your current CD4 count and percent are, or what the trend has been over time. In addition, you don't say what your viral load level trends have been. So, difficult to answer your question.

HIV antibodies
Hepatitis B
