Viral Load & CD4

Dec 22, 2013

Thank you for your answer. I found this info on someone. Now, do I tell them I know. No, I won't. You said the viral load of 20 is good but the CD4 indicates some damage. Is this individual really sick? The person looks so healthy. I'm dumbfounded!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

"Sick" is a relative term, and would require a complete medical assessment to understand the clinical condition of the person.

"blip" or not?
Bone density loss cause identified, labs back to normal?
