High cd4-cd8 ratio of 7.62

Sep 9, 2018

Hi, I just got test results, and my cd4-cd8 ratio was 7.62...high My cd8 absolute was 169..low, and my % cd8 was 8.... low. What does this mean? All of this other numbers were in normal range.

Thank you

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't provide any clinical context for why this test was performed. What is your current HIV viral load result, and are you taking HIV meds? Are there any other active medical conditions? I suggest you discuss this result with your doctor who ordered the test.
