|My First Lab Results
May 30, 2009
I recently received my first CD4 adn Viral Load testing. My CD4 is 448 and my Viral Load is 646? Are these numbers bad? I havent got a chance to get into the doctor as there is a waiting list to get in... Can someone help me with this question??

These are very good numbers. Your CD4 count is almost in the normal range (500-1500) and your HIV viral load is very low. I think most HIV specialists would conclude you don't need HIV medications at this point given those numbers.
