hiv and diminution of my charge virale

Dec 2, 2007

I'm a woman, 33 years old. By accident, I've been diagnosed hiv positive. My blood test is excellent, except hiv; I had a natural diminution of numbers of copies from 150 to 85 in 1 month time. So, what can i think about my results? Thank you very much.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what your CD4 count is. Given those viral load levels, which are very low, I would assume your CD4 count is > 500 (or in the normal range). There is no significant difference between those viral load levels.

how long for results to come back
Improved VL but not CD4
