CD4 % Fluctuations
« on: November 09, 2006, 08:26:30 AM »
As I approach one year since infection, my CD4 % seems to still be jumping around.  Are these 3 and 4 % fluctuations typical at one year out?  Everyone says this number should be the more stable one.  Any thoughts?  My ID doc seems unconcerned and doesn't want to do labs for 3 more months or start meds.  I have had no health issues to date.

hi texasguy - when % is over 17% many ID docs won't be too concerned if your health is stable ...

Just to add to the previous post...My Uncles % is at 11 and the doctor isn't concerned!  And his cd4 count bounces all over the place.
