Viral load

Feb 12, 2012

I just get results from my Doctor saying my CD4 Count is 318 and viral load is 139. Is this fine as when I heard that I'm HIV I was 208.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate whether you are on HIV treatment or not, how long you have been infected, and what the CD4 count and viral load were when you were diagnosed. So it is hard to put those numbers into context of what is going on. That is certainly a better CD4 count than before, and a low viral load, but you don't indicate what the viral load was before.

Viral loads spike
Did i start treatment to soon?
