What is the normal CD4 count?
Q: What is the minimum requirement of CD4 lymphocytes to live a better life? If it is 250/mcl, is it ok?
A:The normal CD4 counts range from about 500 to 1500/mcl. Their significance in HIV/AIDS is that anti-retroviral treatment is started when a patients counts fall to below 200/mcl. A count of 250/mcl is low and the patient needs to be examined and investigated and the finding correlated with the clinical profile.
