It that quantity is dangerous

Apr 20, 2014

I just had PCR test and it shows that I have (Viral Load 1.0x105Copies/ml) is that dangerous or no if you please provide me good answer and what should I do after this.

Thank you

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I assume you mean an HIV viral load test result of 100,000 copies/mL, which would be considered in the high range. You don't indicate what your CD4 count/percent is or whether other laboratory tests were obtained. You should consult with your doctor about these results and determine whether treatment is appropriate at this time.

Gradual annual decline of total lymphocytes and CD4
How likely is it for the igM test to be inaccurate?
