re: 908
Jun 4, 2003

My percentage is 42. Is that acceptable?

For the year after I tested positive, (before I started the study) my CD4 consistently came back between 580-700. I guess thats why I don't understand why I cant break 500 again.


Response from Dr. Young

A CD4% of 42 is excellent-- depending on the assay and lab, it's probably in the normal range. BY
