Dear Doctor, my friend was tested HIV+ last july & his viral load was high & CD 4 count less after consultation he was advised Viraday TAB/day & now when he checked again his viral load is below 100 & CD 4 & CD 8 count are normal. Kindly suggest if any lab can check if viral load is nil or better treatments

You are taking right treatment. Still if you want to check cd4 count and viral load then go to the art centre. They are doing cd4 count and viral load. And if they are not doing then also they will collect your sample and send it to the higher level. you will best guided there.
