Can I look up if someone has HIV?
It is not possible to know if someone has HIV/AIDS by looking at him or her. In fact, HIV often presents no physical symptoms. A person who is infected with HIV may thus not know that he or she has been infected. At the point of HIV infection, a person may present with symptoms within a few weeks of infection.
Who is the longest living person with HIV?
Miguel, nicknamed the Lisbon Patient, made international headlines earlier this year when he turned 100, making him the oldest known person living with the virus. His doctors recently reported that he “died peacefully” in his sleep, reports Canada’s CTV news.
How long can you stay undetectable?
A person’s viral load is considered “durably undetectable” when all viral load test results are undetectable for at least six months after their first undetectable test result. This means that most people will need to be on treatment for 7 to 12 months to have a durably undetectable viral load.
Having an undetectable viral load does mean that there is not enough HIV in your body fluids to pass HIV on during sex. In other words, you are not infectious. For as long as your viral load stays undetectable, your chance of passing on HIV to a sexual partner is zero.
If you’re undetectable, you will still test positive for HIV. This is expected, and doesn’t mean that your treatment is not working.
