Re:Re: Viral load jump to 933

Aug 15, 2012

Hello Doc..

I just got an email from my HIV specialist that my VL result back to undetectable. He said that previous result ( VL 933) was a very unusual lab error . Usually the error just a blip around 100-400 And he doesn't need to do the resistant test due to very low vl . Have you had any experience with a blip around 1000 like me?

Thank You

Response from Dr. Young

Hello again,

Great to hear. I agree with your doctor- this is likely a lab error, and most "blips" are in the low 100's.

With the newest lab value undetectable, I'd put the 933 behind you and not worry much further.

Best of health to you, BY
