Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, the CD4 count can vary like that for a lot of reasons including time of day, different labs or assays, after immunizations, because of other ongoing medical conditions, among other reasons. Usually the CD4% is a more stable number over time.

CD4% increasing CD4 absolute decreasing, why?
