What does it mean to be undetectable?

Being undetectable means having such a low level of the HIV virus in the body that it is not detectable by HIV tests. This usually happens when people take their medications regularly and maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet. People who are on antiretroviral therapy (ART) can usually become undetectable within six to twelve months of starting treatment.
