trying to understand my bloodwork

Jun 9, 2013

my cd4 count is1293 and always the percent number they give me is >40 but this time the doctor said that number ( viral load) I guess is 90 what does this mean the doctor has ordered more bloodwork in 6 weeks to test the lab results. should i be concerned at the increase in this number?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I think you need to clarify what each number means and whether you have more than one value for each test. It is difficult to know what those numbers mean unless put into the proper context.

Low viremia
Lab result
