Response from Dr. Holodniy

I wonder if that result of 33 is the CD4 percent and not the count. It would seem highly unlikely, given that you have an undetectable HIV viral load that your CD4 count dropped from 290 to 33 in such a short time. If 33 is the count and not percent, then it must be a mistake and your CD4 test should be repeated.
