Viral load
Mar 13, 2006

my viral load has been detected to be 100,000. I know that's high. Have people with this high viral load lived long? I'm still waiting for my other test results. Just recently diagnosed.

Response from Dr. Young

Yes, persons with high viral loads should have very good prognoses. Current antiretroviral combination therapies have been shown to be very effective in persons with high viral loads (arbitrarily defined as >100,000).

Good luck, BY
