HOW FAST SHOULD HIV VIRAL LOAD DROP?
Feb 24, 2013

in september 2012 my HIV viral load was above 750000 now with treatment in february 2013 it is 8000. Is this commendable?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, that is a good response. You don't indicate what HIV medications you are taking and what your CD4 count and percent response has been. On the next test, your viral load should be well below 8000 or undetectable. If it is not, and you are taking your medications appropriately, then you may need to reevaluate what is going on.
