Most Recent Test

Jun 16, 2007

My recent HIV viral load was 85 and my CD4 was 754. My doctor doesn't want to put me on meds. Should I insist or take him for his word and knowledge? What is considered "good" viral load and "good" CD4?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You doctor is correct. A normal CD4 count in someone without HIV infection is 500 to 1500. Your count is in the normal range. There is no good viral load level, but < 10,000 is considered low and > 100,000 is considered high.
