I became HIV+ in 94' I started meds 5 yrs ago within a yr. I became undetectable. I'm almost 60. I used to be happy with my medical providers,it seems being undetectable means they don't need to be concerned anymore I've been sick for 5 wks now, vomiting,fatigue,night sweats & major weight loss. My HIV doc said it's not the HIV, my FP said she does know what it is, I've gone from 190lbs to 162 lbs. I don't know what to do? She put me on a BRAT diet and is rechecking blood work.

i was diagnosed with HIV+ in 2005, i have remained undetectable since going on meds. i turn 50 this year and for the most part my health has been great, now struggling with lipodystrophy a side effect of old hiv medications. Taking a new hiv medication one pill a day which is better. Glad latinx folks impacted by hiv are being studied and researched ????

I have been positive for 34 years. I am also Latino and going into 56 years of age. I do have great health provider and and remain undetectable. My daily intake is just two pills, which reminds me, we have come a long way. Greatful and healthy and hoping to age gracefully!

I like this story hit real close to home, I am a Gay Latino and have been living with HIV since 1985, thank god I gave a great Dr, that has watched my progress and was in several drug trials and I am finally the best health of my life. I can proudly say I am undetectable for quite some time now. I thank god I have never done drugs, or am a very big drinker. I think for a 56 year old Latino I look pretty good for my age. Thank you for this segment. Rickie G.
