Q and A


What does a viral load of 124 mean?

My viral load test has just come back, it’s 124, what does this mean?


Thanks for getting in touch.

For me to be able to comment, I’m going to need to know how long you’ve been on medication for. If you’re new to meds, then this is great viral result. If you’ve been on meds for a while and your viral load has been lower than 124, then this could be a testing error. However, I’m going to need more info. If you could respond to this post that would be great.

    Hi Picasso,

    Thanks for letting us know. How’s it going? What ARVs are you taking?

    And if you have access to your CD4 count and viral load results, please tell us what they are.
