|RE:Is there resistance?
Jan 23, 2002
1) My Dr. did order a geno-typing test, but unable to complete due to not enough virus in the blood.
Should I continue as, or would you still suggest taking some other steps.
Thank-You for your input.
Response from Dr. Little
I am still concerned that your viral load is not undetectable - 6 weeks is a bit soon, but upon repeat testing, I would like to see it undetectable. If you have another opportunity to do the resistance testing I would do so (these tests are generally very good above viral loads of 1000, and often quite good with viral loads of 500-1000).
How fast to suppression is acceptable
