Why did you have this test? CD4/8 testing normally is only done in people with HIV to follow their immune functioning over time. If that's your situation, these are great numbers, showing a strong cellular immune system without serious damage (yet?) from HIV, or that your anti-HIV treatment is effective. There are few other reasons for such testing, but in any case these numbers look great.
