viral load

Dec 3, 2001

If my viral load is over 10,000 does that leave me at a higher risk of becomimg infected with full blown aids?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There is good data to suggest that in the absence of treatment, viral load is a very good predictor of the risk of progression to AIDS. People with a viral load of 10,000 do have a higher risk of progression to AIDS compared to those with a viral load of 500. MH

viral load decreases while t-cell remains the same..taking noe meds
