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
