viral laod and CD4 cells

May 13, 2012

my lab latest results is CD4 is 353 and viral load is 26000, must is be worried or is normal? im not yet on med does this mean i must start?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The normal range for CD4 counts is 500-1500. Your CD4 count is thus low, but not dangerously so. Your viral load is in the moderate range. Taken together, your numbers indicate you should start HIV treatment.

Lower WBC, Undetectable, Lowering CD4
cd4 count has not improved in 9 months on Atripla
