cd4 and HIV
May 25, 2015
So if my cd4 levels is 216 and my viral load is under 20 would you say I have had the virus long?

Hello and thanks for posting.
While it's difficult to predict the length of HIV infection from lab tests alone (especially without having a negative test in the past), on average, someone who has a CD4 count of around 200 has had HIV for several years.
