My daughters viral load

Jun 21, 2009

Her viral load is now 3,700,000.00,How bad is that,her doc. told her that she had to loode 30 lbs. to undergo the therapy,please hel. How bad is this count? Thanks,

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Assuming this is a HIV viral load result, that is quite high. The significance depends in part on what the CD4 count is. I am not sure I understand the reason for needing to lose weight before starting treatment.

can you help me decipher my labs?
Kind of a crazy question(most likely is)?
