Aaron Carter has revealed he feared a positive HIV result after he underwent tests amid concerns for his health.

Appearing on US show The Doctors, the 29-year-old discovered he was HIV and AIDS free, saying getting the results was the "scariest thing [he'd] ever done" but confessed he was putting his partners at risk by having unprotected sex.

Aaron's decision to undergo the tests comes after he also revealed he was illegally obtaining prescription drugs off the street, with doctors expressing concerns he was "dangerously malnourished".

"That was the scariest thing I have ever done in my life. After not getting annual checkups and testing and being safe, actually, being safe so I could be safe for others, more importantly," he said on the program.

"That's what scared me. I felt like I was putting people at risk with my body... I didn't have the courage to go face the music."

"You are malnourished. And your body mass index at 17 is in a scary range," the I Want Candy singer was told by Dr Travis Lane Stork.

"We can't just sit here and blame it on a hiatal hernia. We have got to work on this."

Aaron continued, saying his "greatest fear" was "not being able to live", and believed his extreme weight loss was due to HIV.
