Viral Load going up

Mar 14, 2010

I am currently taking Atripla and my viral load has been undetectable for almost 1 year my CD4 count has been lately rising (400-455) today my CD4 was 455 and my viral load 222 (when my blood was drawn last week I had a sinus infection) could this be a a factor that caused the viral load to rise? thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Could be. I suspect on your next test, your result will be undetectable again.

cd 4 count increase
cd4 count 8
