CD4/Viral Load

Mar 15, 2004

I have heard various ideas on what is considered a high viral load. My viral load has gone from 20,000 to 122,000 in six months. I am not on meds because my CD4 is nearly 600. Should I be alarmed that my viral load is jumping so significantly?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

A viral load of 122,000 would be considered moderately high. The change would also be considered significant and outside assay variability.

HIV/cardiolipin antibodies etc.
can the virus lose resistance?
