Please Help Me Understand These Lab Results.
First I got them in the mail from my gastro with no explanation or recommendation.
I got very upset when I saw the HIV 1 RNA Ultra it shows no viral load but says This specimen has less than 50 copies of HIV - L RNA per 1 ml of plasma ( viral Load )
The linear range for this test is between 50 & 100,000 HIV - 1 RNA copies/ml

This test is for prognostic use only. This assay is not intended for diagnostic use. Results for this assay should be used in conjunction with the patients clinical presentation and other established laboratory tests.

I do not understand what this means ? Why they did the test I have had an aids test before & it was negative ? Does this mean I have aids ?

I called my gastro yesterday only to be told by his nurse that she would talk to him & call me back which of course did not happen & now he is not in this morning & I need to know what this means.
Again I can't believe a doctor would just mail you something like this with no explanation.

Here all all the other numbers I obviously can see what is out of range & what my viral load is but just how bad does this report look ?
Alt & ast are higher than 10 months ago & viral load 2 years ago was 1 million ? Did the test only measure to a million before ? Could it have really been higher then and only called a million or has it really gone from 1 million to 17 million in 2 years.
