High Viral Load

Nov 14, 2009

Can a Viral Load over 1.5 MILLION come down to undetectable? Recently diagnosed (213CT4) and started Atripla two weeks by doc's advise from Geno-type results. My understanding is that a Viral Load 5,000 to 10,000 is high; so 1.5M is crazy. My habits (eating, exercise) are good.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, most certainly a viral load of 1.5M can go to undetectable with HIV treatment. A viral load of 5,000 would be considered in the low range.
