He is taking meds: Actually, we don't know if magic has had aids based on a low CD4 count ( a test to determine his immune status) less than 200. It is possible that he could have had an aids diagnosis, but he has been on anti-hiv meds, which are the same as what other people with HIV are taking as well, since his diagnosis. Obviously, he seems to be doing well, just as many of my patients who are taking their meds.
