Reduced VL & CD4 (no meds)

Dec 20, 2006

I was diagnosed May 06, with initial stats CD4 of 626 & VL 46000, then CD4 393 & VL 57000 in Sep 06 (in the presence of Gonorrhea infection, imediately prior to a/b treatment), and then most recently CD4 317 & VL 343 (samples taken 2 days after finishing a/b treatment for Epididymitis).

Can you explain why there has been such a drop in VL but also CD4.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Can't explain the results, but the viral load is certainly not consistent with previous results. After everything has calmed down you need another set of numbers to see where you really are.

Should I keep Records?
