Hi there we chatted about a month ago. I do not know how well you are informed about HIV, but you sound like you know a great deal. So I had a pcr and another western blot. My viral load is 7000 and cd4 is 409. The doctor said I may have something in my system that is slowing the replication process down? She said normally when people have acute Hiv infection the viral load usually is a million or more and if someone has been infected with in the last 5 years, most people still have a relatively high viral load. I am fine with having HIV, but am curious why my viral load is so low? When I start taking the quad medication does it destroy HIV cells? If so since my immune system is handling the multiplication process so well do you think that my cells could destroy the rest of it off? The reason I ask is because my case had been weird from the start. 3 positive elisa, 1 indeterminate western blot, and then a positive western blot and a viral load of only 7000. I would have thought with the stress of finding out that I have HIV would cause the viral load to be extremely high and if I were just seroconverting that it would be high as well. I have thought to contact people who are in research and asking to be a case study for them? If you could let me know your thoughts about this :-)
