True or False
Dec 10, 2005

More then once I have heard that Magic Johnson is now HIV NEGATIVE not just that true, I hope that this question does not invade his privacy, if it does and you cannot answer for risk of being sued, I understand thanks, soimnotalone

Response from Dr. Young

Ah, it's good to but an end to crazy rumors.

I'm not Magic's doctor, but have met the nice and dedicated man. From the limited knowledge that i have of his health, Magic is HIV positive, but (like many persons in the US) on his medications, he has an undetectable HIV viral load. Some less well informed have interpreted an undetectable viral load as being "HIV negative"-- they're wrong. BY

switching to Truvada/Reyataz/Norvir
Zerit & wasting
