20,000,000+ Viral Load
Hi guys, it's been a while since I've logged in. My story short: I failed Interferon, I'm hiv+, I'm waiting for the new drug approvals to try again, and I'm finally having my first liver biopsy next month. Liver enzymes have been relatively stable around 80 to 120.  But my viral load is something well over 20 million. This makes me very curious how this effects me.

Unlike HIV, viral load is not prognostic in hepatitis C patients. So I wouldn't worry too much about how high it is. It also tends to fluctuate, sometimes by quite a bit. Good luck with your biopsy.

I wouldn't worry about the viral load. It really don't matter if you have 10 or 100 million. This # has nothing to do with how much damage is being done. The only time that # means something is when you are treating.

Re-treating with the new drugs sounds like a great plan.

Good luck with the biopsy. Don't sweat it...nothing to it.

Hi There,  I have decreased mine to 621 for viral load through a massive change of diet of foods that helps increase liver cells which basically if enough will kick out the Hepatitis DNA count.  Try a Juicing of Beets, Carrots, Celery, Apples, Lime, for about 1-2 months and read the book on "Soul Mind Body Medicine"  Helped me a lot!.  HIV and Hepatitis B/C/A/D/G/E  can be cured but you have to sacrifice a lot of those good burgers, hot dogs, meat, alcohol, etc.  No sweat like Copyman said,  if u do it right u be okay.  My email is ***@****  if u want to talk about it, I can tell you now I decrease mine down that low.
