What is a "high" viral load?
Dec 15, 2007
I've been trying to find out what level is considered a "high" viral load, as opposed to moderate or low. I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Are there generally accepted levels for a viral load result that would constitute high, moderate, and low levels? If so, what are those levels?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
No standard definitions. In general, high = > 100,000, medium = 5,000 to 100,000, low = < 5,000.
