viral load increase

Jun 30, 2007

I am newly diagnosed, with only 2 sets of labs done. 1st set: CD4 949,cd%44, vl<5000, second set 3 months later: cd4 959, % 44, vl 10498. Should I be concerned with this change in my viral load?? I just got over a sinus infection just over a month prior to my bloodwork.

Thank you

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not be concerned. Your counts are in the normal range, indicating your immune system is doing a great job controlling the infection.

High cd8 percent
My first treatment - discontinued due to severe rash
