      #187713 - 04/24/06 09:22 AM

i ask my doctor to do a cd 4 and cd 8 but i'm confused
maybe he didn't do the right test. maybe some body knows
what this is cd 4 57.0 normal range 30.8-58.5
cd8 23.5 normal range 12-35.5 i always see cd 4 counts
in normal people 500-1500 maybe somebody might know if you don't care to give some insight

They were read as percentages instead of absolute counts.

cd 4 57.0 normal range 30.8-58.5

cd8 23.5 normal range 12-35.5

These are both percentages, they are in the normal range and they are not conducive of evaluating your risk or having HIV. Both cd4 & 7 numbers can fluctuate drastically in non infected people due to any type of virus in your system and the absolute number can change by the hundreds varying times throughout the day. This is not any form of evaluating if you have HIV, if you want to be sure take a HIV test, 13weeks is conclusive. A negative result at 6 weeks with percentages like that is as good in my book because those numbers show you have a normal immune system and would show HIV+ if you were infected by week 6.
