|Testing for HIV when undetectable
May 18, 2013
Hi there, I have had HIV for about 5 years, currently doing okay with cd4 of 500+, T-cell count just above 30% and undetectable viral load. My question is what happens when I am tested for HIV do my results show positive or negative? I ask as I may have to go undergo a medical for work purposes and I fear a positive result will result in me losing the job opportunity.

The HIV antibody tests will remain positive.
