Viral Load
Apr 22, 2012

I just got the result of my VL which stands at 16,750 and CD4 count is 890. Kindly advice me on the implication of this to an HIV positive person. is the viral load on the high side?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your CD4 count is in the normal range (500-1500) and your viral load is in the moderate range. Anything over 100,000 would be considered a high viral load. Putting these two facts together, there is no urgency to start HIV treatment, but HIV treatment is likely in your future.
