Need Information
Oct 14, 2004

Hi there remember away I wrote to you maybe 2 months ago to ask you when was best to start treatment well at that time I had found out my c4 count was 399 now my second test said my c4 count climbed to 450 and I'm not on any antiretroviral medications is that a normal thing that happens?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your question.

Modest variations in CD4 counts are not unusual at all. A change from ~400 to ~450 is definitely with the range of normal.
