It is the right time to start treatment. Better prognosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM
Thanks for posting your query.
Among all the values sent by you, CD4 count, percentage and the ratio between CD4 and CD8 are important to assess the stage and severity of the disease. CD4 count above 350 is not that bad, but the treatment with ART has to be started. The Clarity percentage below 20% is also an indication for treatment. The ratio also is at a lower level.
