increase in viral load
Dec 7, 2008

I have been positive for 4 years now and I am not on any meds. My viral load has always been in the 4000s. My recent test showed an increase to about 6000. Should that increase alarm me?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not be concerned. That difference is within the variability of the viral load assay.
