viral load

Nov 12, 2006

HIV for 10 yrs, on HIV treatment, T cell count is level. What does it mean when the viral load has soared to 130,000?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what your past viral loads have been on treatment. Was your viral load undetectable and on the next test it is now 130,000? Or has it been creeping up over time? Also, what do you mean by CD4 being level? What is the count and percent? Have you been taking your meds correctly and did you have any kind of illness when the blood work was done?

Newly Positive T-Cell Count 15
