genotype sent and what to do while waiting for return
Nov 16, 1999

my t cell count is 323 and my vl is at 240,000 and it takes around 2 weeks to get results on my genotype test. Is this harming me by waiting the 2 weeks and is my counts very dangouse to my health. This is my first HIV+ test i had.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Two weeks of waiting will not hurt you. Your viral load is quite high, but your T cells are only moderately decreased. These numbers should improved dramatically with therapy. MH

stopping drugs due to resistance...?
Lack of resistance when initiated HAART- confused
