Are my CD4 and CD8 test results significant?

Had 3 hiv tests at 3 months, 10 months and 1 year. All tests negative, but have symptoms like sore throat, fungal infections, intermittent diarrhea etc.

Did CD4 CD8 count- Cd4 is 702, CD8 is 758. The ratio is lower limit of normal. Is that significant?

  1. Alafia (Peace) I am a bit confused. I don't understand how you are getting CD4 test when your HIV status is negative. Who are you seeing to conduct these tests? I do understand the anxiety you must be feeling. Please share more details with us. Khafre (Team Member)

    1. Got it done to see the level of immunity as having recurrent fungal infections and sore throat
      Does it mean my immunity is low?
      Negative 4th generation test at 12 months is 💯 % conclusive?

      1. I hope your doctors can give you insight soon into these symptoms and am glad you're healthy otherwise. The mind and body are connected, I find, and mental and physical health so intertwined! Best of luck to you and I hope this community can continue to be a support. - Liz (Team Member)

    2. Alafia (Peace) @robinda, Thank you for the clarification. I agree with Jaake, your CD4 is in the normal range. I would continue to work with your provider regarding the infections. Khafre (Team Member)
