What are the Standard (or Normal) viral load numbers in an uninfected person like? I want to be able to compare my numbers so that I see where I stand with my lab results since I've recently started HIV meds.

In an uninfected individual, there is no HIV to detect. Hence, the viral load test would have undectable levels of HIV RNA. -BY
