is this good news?
Oct 28, 2008

I was diagnosed two months ago with a vl of 1538 and cd4 of 770. My doctor did a test the next month and my vl went down to 271 and cd4 was at 770. I am not talking any meds. Is this unusual or should I be prepared for it to reverse suddenly? thanks

Response from Mr. Vergel

It is great news. I hope you are what we call an "elite controller" that will suppress HIV without medications. Keep getting blood work done to test your CD4 and viral load every 3-4 months.
