JUST GOT MY NUMBERS
Oct 11, 2009

I JUST GOT MY NUMBERS AND MY TCELLS ARE 829 AND MY HIV VIRAL LOAD IS 101. THIS IS MY FIRST VISIT SINCE A FEW WEKS AGO WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS POSITIVE. I'M STILL CONFUSED IF THESE NUMBERS ARE GOOD OR BAD. cAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

Your numbers are very good. Your CD4 count is within the normal range and your HIV plasma viral load is low. I'm confident your HIV specialist will review this information with you. In the meantime, take a read through the information on The Body's homepage in the "Just Diagnosed Resource Center." There is a chapter devoted to HIV monitoring tests that explain CD4 counts, viral loads and other tests.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
