I have a question regarding my lab tests which I usually take every three to six month. I am not sure what is going on here with my bod, but enclosed are the results:
1- on 11 aug 2011
Cd 4 1987 /ml
Cd 8 775 / ml
T-lymphocytes 1862 / ml
NKC 413 /ml
2 - on 1 dec 2011
Cd 4 916 /ml
Cd 8 404 / ml
T-lymphocytes 1302 / ml
NKC 49 /ml
I don't know why my CD8 and NKC is so low and I am very concerned. Is there any explanation on why they have dropped like that? I heard it might be related to HIV infection or cancer in the body and it is freaking me out.
