How to interpret a lymphocyte blood test (CD4, CD8, etc).

    I am advocating for my 21 year old daughter who has CFS, FM, and POTS among other issues. A CFS doctor suggested that she have a lymphocyte panel (blood test) to see how her immune system is. This blood test measured: CD19, CD3, CD4, CD8, CD56 values as well as an absolute lymphocyte count. Her tests came back in the normal range, but my question is whether they are optimal or not.

    Unlike other diagnostic tests, such as Vitamin D, where you can find a generally agreed upon ranges for optimal levels of this vitamin, I am having a hard time finding resources that tell you what optimal levels are.

    Does anyone have any good links that they can share that can help compare my daughter's values to recommended ranges?

    Thank you in advance for such information.
