Virus Load

Feb 18, 2007

The last time I had draw blood for test I was in the middle of a very strong seasonal flu, even had a little bit of fever. My results are back now. It shows 72500 viral load and 690 t-cell. I never had virus load so high. Could the fact that I was in the middle of a flu substantially increase my viral load reading???

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, another ongoing infection could result in transient increases in viral load.
