Oct 27, 2013

HI Doctor, I have been pos since 2007 Why doctor always tell me im doing fine, great job, kepp it up? but never talk about numbers, so today i request a copy of my labs but I cant understand and no doctor to explain. Te Tests CD4/cd8 ratio profile 505271 CD4 helper 814/ul % cd pos lymp 37.% CD 8 supressor 684/ul %31.% HIV RNA detected NRA by PCR <20 copies/ml log10 RNA unable to calculate result since non-numeric result.. Thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Well, I would have to agree with your doctor. Your numbers are fabulous. Your CD4 count and percent are in the normal range (CD4 count: 500-1500, CD4%: 30-50%), and your HIV viral load is undetectable, which is where you want it.

Being undetectable (?)
Transmission protection between HIV pos and HCV pos sexual partners?
