Undetectable and now 103

Aug 27, 2007

Question for you: I have been on meds for a while and have been undetectable for a number of years. Today my results showed great T-Cells but a viral load of 103. Is 103 just an annomoly and basically undetectable or is it something to start getting concerned about - that maybe the meds have stopped working after a few years?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

An anomaly of sorts we call a blip. Nothing to be worried about, and is most likely associated with assay variability and not with failure of meds.

CD4 - CD4% questions
will I need meds soon?
