Response from Dr. Holodniy

You still have HIV infection and the virus. The undetectable viral load is a measure of how much virus is in the blood plasma. It does not measure the virus in other parts of the body. You don't have AIDS at this point because your CD4 count has doubled and you are no longer at risk for some of the serious infections associated with AIDS.

Smoking & t-cells.
supplements and viral load
