|Lab results showing promise or not?
Apr 28, 2003
I first tested HIV+ on Feb 08,2003, and shortly folowing after another series of tests diagnosed with AIDS on Feb 21,2003.
My February 21 lab results were as follows:
HIV-1 RNA by PCR, Quan = 643,787 copies/ml
HIV-1 RNA Log = 5.808
CD4 = 17.0 Absolute CD4 = 170
My blood test results as of 04/07/2003 were:
HIV-1 RNA Ultra Sensitive QN = 6129 copies/ml
HIV-1 RNA Log = 3.787
Somehow these results seem remarkable.Please explain. Thank you.

Those results are remarkable and tell you that the meds do work. You are on a potent regimen and should be able to get your viral load undetectable pretty soon. Keep up the good work.
