The increase in your % is MUCH more important than a change in CD4's because the latter can fluctuate +/-100 easily.  Focus on the VL number first, the % number 2nd, and the CD4 count last.

hi all.  you can have the same lab tests drawn at 2 or 3 different times on the same day with very different results.  just how the body is reacting/responding to different factors at that particular time
