increase in viral load
Apr 17, 2010
Hi,I am recently diagnosed as HIV positive, do not receive a treatment yet. After six months I ve got 4 CD4 count and, two viral load test results. CD4 counts were 610, 650, 720, 690 which I assume is ok but in six months, the viral load increased to 7200 from the initial level of 650. Is this increase a bad sign? would it continue? Or can it be considered as within the frame of a random fluctuation?
