weight loss

Dec 9, 2012

My virals are undetectable as to my cd4 count my dr will not tell me only that I'm his prize patient but recently I've been loosing weight is this normal?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The devil is in the details. What is your current CD4 count? I assume, given your undetectable viral load, that you are on HIV treatment. What HIV meds and/or other medications are you taking, and do you have any other active medical problems? And finally, how much weight, and over what time frame has this occurred?

very low viremia
HIV Positive result came back
