cd4 and viral load

Feb 23, 2014

If my viral load is 118 but CD4 is 608 is tht good or bad.. I am 28 was diagnosed when I was bout 20 had it for almost 8 years undetectable. Please let me kno

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Both of your labs are excellent. First, your CD4 count is in the normal range.

Second, your off-treatment viral load is very, very low- suggesting that you are likely to have very slow disease progression and probably won't need HIV medications for a long while.

Be well, BY

Rapid testing!
