After Charlie Sheen's HIV Status, What You Need to Know About the Disease

Originally posted 11/17/2015 05:15PM

In the wake of Charlie Sheen's revelation on Today that he is HIV-positive, medical experts affirm that life for those diagnosed has changed significantly, and for the better, in the decades since news of the autoimmune disease first emerged.

On Tuesday morning, Sheen told Matt Lauer that he currently has an undetectable amount of the virus in his blood and that none of his sexual partners have contracted the disease from him. PEOPLE sought out two experts to help clarify a few key facts about the disease, the first of which is that the prognosis for people like Sheen who are living with and receiving treatment for HIV is more positive now than it's ever been.

"It's not like 10 or 15 years ago when [those who were infected] were taking mouthfuls of pills that made them feel more horrible than the disease," says Karen Dykes, an infectious disease nurse practitioner and educator with 10 years experience working with HIV/AIDS patients. "Most people on HIV treatment are taking one to two pills a day. There are multiple medications in those pills but that's the reality of it. They're living 30, 40 years, there's literally no timetable with how long you're going to live with an HIV diagnosis now as long as you're in care."
