Response from Dr. Holodniy
Your viral load is quite low and that change would be considered within assay variability and therefore not a significant change. Another number to follow is your CD4 percent. Although your CD4 count appears to have increased significantly, I suspect the percent has not changed and therefore this is not a real increase.
