What number is considered undectable
« on: December 10, 2012, 08:42:54 PM »
Hi I just wanted to know what number is considered an undetectable viral load? I went from 127,000 to 300 with 17 days on Stribild. Tcells are 645.

Hi I just wanted to know what number is considered an undetectable viral load? I went from 127,000 to 300 with 17 days on Stribild. Tcells are 645.

20, 50, 75....Etc.

It depends on who you ask.  At one point in time under 500 was considered UD because that's all the tests at that time could measure.

If you look at your results there might be a notation stating what levels the test can read.  For example the test the lab I go to uses can measure anything from 20-10,000,000 copies.  So UD for me would be <20 since the exam would no longer be able to detect any virus.

That's a large drop in just 17 days.  I had a similar result with Complera which is basically Stribild without the booster, and after a month my VL went from 57,000 down to 80.
10/11/2012 Journey Started
10/17/2012 First Labs: VL=57,645  CD4+=730  37%
10/31/2012 Started Complera
11/30/2012 Labs: VL=80  CD4+=929 40%
12/24/2012 Started Stribild

Undetectable since 1/15/13 CD4+= Over 1,400 and 49%
