Viral Load increase

Aug 9, 2009


Last Year my VL was at 50 copies....Presently I am at 4,180 copies my CD4 is 1050...

I frequently miss doses. Sometimes I take only 1 dose a day. Do you think that that is the reason for such a big increase.....

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, and likely the result of your virus developing resistance to the HIV medications you are taking. You need to have a resistance test performed.
