Undetectable to 60 but adhering

Apr 24, 2011

Ive been positive for 4 years and been taking Atripla for 3 years and have never missed a dose. My viral load went undetectable within 6 months and my CD4 count is over 800. But on my last labs, my viral load showed up at 60. My Dr. says it's a "blip" and I should retest in 3 months. Should I be worried?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not be concerned and agree with your doctor and his plan.

Should I expect something bad to happen to me?
How does the cd4 count and viral load work??
