Viral Load: 54cpy/ml

Question

I'm curious as to how this range flows. Recently I received a result showing HIV 1 RNA 54 cpy/ml. I'm currently on Triumeq. Previous results less than 20 cpy/ml. New doctor, so the testing could be different. I'm wondering if this is normal? Is this considered undetectable? CD4: 666 as well.

Answer

Assuming no change in HIV meds and good adherence, this would be considered a blip in HIV viral load and I would not be concerned. No, it would not be considered undetectable, but I suspect on the next test it will be undetectable again.
