John one thing you need to realize is there are normal fluctuations with CD4 counts and total WBC count throughout the day. From what I've read for most people's counts are higher in the morning and lower in the afternoon which might explain some of the differences. Furthermore you need to look at the CD4 % versus the total count. Whose ordering CD4 counts anyway? The variations alone are enough to send one into a panic...
