Feb 18, 2007

I was recently diagnosed with hiv. My viral load was undectable and my t cell count was 752. Then three weeks later my docor called me and said they wanted me to retest. I retested and now they say I my wastern blot was negative although I continue to test reactive to the elisa. Have you ever heard of this before? I was told westrn blots are not wrong.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You need another retest of the western blot in a couple of weeks.
