What does my blood test result mean?
My CD4 is 900, viral load 300. But one of my blood tests was below average(neutral field) or some thing like that. What does that mean?
Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, without knowing what the blood test you mention was looking at, I can’t comment on the result. If you are confused about what any test results mean you should ask your doctor or nurse to explain these.
Are you currently on any treatment? The reason I ask is because of your viral load test result. If you have been on treatment for more than 6 months you would expect this result to be less than 50, or ‘undetectable’. A viral load of 300 is fine if you are not on treatment, or if you started very recently. But if you have been on treatment for more than 6 months your doctor should be checking why this is not as low as it should be.
