The viral load is also called the cd4 count?
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 2 months ago

No its different . Viral load mean total copies of HIV virus in blood while CD4 cells are targetted by the virus so their count eventually falls in advanced disease

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
