viral count

Oct 18, 2008

my son, who is 7 hours away from me, said he has a viral load, his terms, of 12500. what can that mean and he is in any danger with that count? I am terrified.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is difficult to comment on what this means without first knowing about other relevant information such as his CD4 count, whether he is on HIV treatment, does he have any other ongoing medical problems, etc.
