|HIV 1 Western Blot Weakly Reactive
Jan 15, 2009
Hello Sir Please help to understand if I am on risk for being HIV+, please see my report on HIV, as here on:
HIV 1/2 Screen MEIA : Reactive,
HIV-1/HIV-2 Supplemental EIA: Reactive,
HIV 1 Western Blot: Weekly Reactive,
HIV 1 p24 Antigen Screen: Non-reactive.
My Dr. did not have me numbers on anything, he just asked me to get tested for Virol load for HIV due to WB weakly reactive. I am so scared that as i have been reading that WB is if reactive, meant person has HIV.
Please help to understand this report and chances for me being HIV +

Your HIV test results can be suggestive of HIV infection or a "false positive" result. Have you had any risk exposure?
Apparently an HIV plasma viral load test has been ordered for you. That should help confirm your status. If it's elevated, you are most likely HIV infected. If it's undetectable, your antibody test results are most likely falsely positive.
