Response from Dr. Holodniy
You don't indicate whether your are currently receiving HIV treatment and what your CD4 count is. In most people with your viral load numbers, this would be considered a blip in the test and most likely the result of assay variability and therefore nothing to worry about. Usually we get more concerned if the viral load was < 50 and is now > 500-1000 on at least 2 consecutive tests.
