My "Cd4 + cd3 t cell #" is 560. My lab's range is 533-1674. Does this mean I'm borderline low to have weak immune system?

Even in immunodeficiencies, the IgM/A/G levels are often normal, so a random blood test won't reveal what's wrong & could be falsely reassuring. So why waste the money?

Add to this the fact that many "infections" are not infections to begin with and you can see the difficulty. Read more...
