Hi dixiechic. I think my viral load is 15 million (unless I made a mistake and my doc said 1.5 million). I'm not treating yet so I'm giving you a bump so others will see your post. Here are some numbers I found for you on viral loads:
200,000 to 1,000,000 low
1,000,000 to 5,000,000 medium
5,000,000 to 25,000,000 high
above 25,000,000 very high
Of course, I'm no expert. So you may not want the opinion of an up-in-the-night itchy girl. But my vial load tripled in a year. My Dr. wasn't concerned. Said the med would do the work if it were going to.
I think they may treat longer??? Just an opinion. I had the same concerns once I went over a million. I finally took a Vistaril. Hope it kicks in. This middle of the night thinking can turn into worry tooo quickly. Take care.. Karen :)
I thought that as long as you were under 1000 at week 4 you go on to treat and you were undetectable so wouldn't you be clear sailing to continue treatment. I didn't think it could go up to 1000 at week 12 after being undetectable but I'm very far from knowing for sure. Just my assumption.
Before I started treatment my viral load was higher than they measure... it was greater than 69 million... I'm getting my 3rd injection tonight... so, suffice to say, I'm very interested in this post!!
My doc said how high the load is isn't important, it's there or it's not. I know I was over two million and cleared in 4 weeks. You'll be fine, yea the worrying su---.joe
my vl was like 10 mil..and if i didn'tget so anemic that i had to stop the riba at week 3 i'm sure i wouldn't havehad any vl...i do have a very ..very low vl...i would say if you stay on the triple you'll kill it off in 4 weeks....good luck...billy
