Viral load counts
Sep 3, 2006
Hi. My sister is HIV+ I am really confused about calculating the viral load counts. Her CD4 counts are 370 which is normal i know but her vl is 130000. Can you please tell me the range of vl and she got this test done for the first time after she was detected hiv+ in 2004.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
A CD4 count of 370 would not be considered normal, but modestly decreased. The normal range in uninfected people is about 500-1500. The range of viral load is from undetectable (< 50 copies/mL) to over 1 million/mL. Her viral load would be considered in the moderately high to high range.
