J.R.E.:
Hello ,

You can find out all about t-cells by clicking on the links below... They will give you plenty of information :

The normal T4 count is somewhere between 500 and 1500 cells per cubic millimeter of blood (a drop, more or less).

And from this lesson section on this site, the following :

Hope this helps you understand a little better.




Take care-----Ray

Just a word of caution too... don't get caught up in worrying about variation in CD4.  Watch for trends.  They can vary significantly day to day and even by time of day.  The CD4 percent is often considered to be more stable for most people.

On the CD4 count front - I have over 15 years worth of my cd4 counts plotted on a spreadsheet - I'm a bit nerdy when it comes to my numbers! It is great for getting an overview of just what my immune system has been up to since diagnosis.

In my experience my cd4 counts have tended to plateau for 4-5 years with the odd blip before taking a step down for the next 4-5 years. When I was diagnosed I was rather obsessed with small changes in numbers, now I see the bigger picture thanks to my spreadsheet and I'm not too bothered with counts.
