Change on Condition

Sep 18, 2000

When my partner tested positive his Viral load was 24,000 and T-Cell count was 756. Three months later he tested again and now his Viral Load is 60,000+ and T-Cell count is 526. What does this mean? And shouldn't we be starting an agressive therapy?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would repeat those tests. If the trend is the same, I would probably recommend starting treatment.


PCR testing conditions, aerosol contamination
Why my viral load goes down markedly without treatment
