Elite Controller

Nov 15, 2008

On Oct. 5 2008 - You replied to my question concerning a blip in my question concerning a blip in my numbers. As you suggested, I was re-tested on Nov 1 and the VL is once again undetectable <50 down from over 3000. Thanks for answering my question.

Answer Although somewhat higher than what we would see with a traditional blip, given where your CD4 count/percent and viral loads have been for the last 4 years, I would not be concerned. I still think it likely to be a blip. However, it does require repeat testing. Most likely you will see it go back down.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Thanks for the update. Good to see you are back where you should be.
