Doctor I have a question regarding an HIV positive person. If a person is diagnosed HIV positive and then through medication achieves a zero viral load or their HIV is at an undetectable level, will such person still test positive when getting tested for HIV or will their results come back negative?
Response from Dr. Daar
In most cases, people with undetectable viral load on therapy will remain HIV antibody positive on routine testing.
