Hep A Ab, total Positive Abnormal
CD4 is 594 at 37.1% .stable for some time Vl is < 48 copies ..... stable for years..

Response from Dr. Holodniy
It means that you have been exposed to toxoplasmosis, CMV and HAV in the past. Given your current CD4 count and percent these are of no concern at this time. They are useful to know however, if you were ever at a point where your CD4 count dropped below 200, toxo and CMV could reactivate and cause infection. In people with negative IgG levels for these infections, these infections could be ruled out because a negative test would rule out past exposure.
