Dear Doctor Holodniy,
I recently seroconverted and my first lab results (approx. 3 months following infection) revealed a T-cell count of 920 and viral load of 59. I understand from my doctor and after doing some reading that this is quite good considering I just seroconverted. Is this a sign of slow progression? How remarkable are my results? Thanks.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Although uncommon, these types of numbers after acute infection are well described. In general if people maintain these kinds of numbers for several years in the absence of meds, that would be considered slow or nonprogression.
