Why has my viral load increased?
I’ve been Positive since 1989. I’ve always been less than 20 Undetectable now my last 2 Blood tests said I went up to 50. Now todays results say 80 ? Should I be worried? My t-cells are 1100, can you tell me whats going on.
Thanks for getting in touch.
If you’ve been adhering to your medication, then it’s very possible that this is simply a lab error.
It’s also important to know that even if your VL has gone up to 80, your HIV is still under control.
If your VL does rise, and rise significantly, then this would indicate that there was an issue with your medication. However you’re has risen only slightly, hence the likelihood that this is a lab error.
