Response from Dr. Holodniy

1. Probably close to that number. 2. No, your first percent was 30%. So there has really been NO net change. 3. That is not a significant decline in viral load. Unlikely it will go down to undetectable without drugs. 4. I think you need a couple more test results to know for sure. I think your CD4 count will stay relatively high for awhile, but given the high viral load, you will need treatment sooner rather than later.
