difference in test results
« on: June 21, 2007, 06:17:29 PM »
I had blood drawn at two different hospitals and two different times like two weeks apart.  I got the results on at the new doctors office and cd4 was 717, 41% and <400.  I went to my regular doctor the next day for my usual appt and my results were cd4 737, 38% and <75.  I know there isnt a big margin in the numbers but am just wondering why the tests could be this different. 

In case you are wondering why i have two drs, its cuz I relocated but still see my regular dr where I came from so I could hang on to my ADAP.  My husband added me to his insuarance but it hasnt kicked in yet.

Blood draws at different times, sent to different labs, more stress one day than the other... many things can have a factor in your results.  Main thing is it's consistent and within a reasonable range.  One lab can be more sensitive than the other... etc, etc.

All in all, it is looking good :) :-*
