These are two different ways of expressing your viral load.

VL 1.450.000 meaning 1million 4hundred and fifty thousand viral load

or in log form it is expressed as log10  6.188

That means your Viral Load is a million & a 1/2---and your log is just over 6...
so if you start treatment or want to do treatment your goal would be to have a viral load of zero.. and log of nothing..

Do you know your Geno type..??? are you on treatment...??

Viral load is not all the important ...unless you start treatment..it is most important only at the day you start your 1st injection to determine how treatment is working...

Welcome to the forum.  Your VL was about identical to mine pre treatment.  I know it sounds like a lot but there have been much higher viral loads reported on this forum.  Have you had a biopsy?
