The linear range of the assay is 20-10,000.000 RNA copies/mL
What do these figures mean and also is it advisable for me to start cotrimoxazole at this stage if i feel ok
Response from Dr. Holodniy
You don't indicate what your CD4 count, or what the indication for co-trimoxazole is in your case. In general, your numbers you have presented look very good. Your HIV viral load is very low. You have a slight increase in your GPT and decrease in your GFR which could be the result of your HIV meds. But it is difficult to know without seeing what the values have been over time.
