young and living with hiv
Apr 27, 2008

I was diagnosed with hiv at 18 the doctors have advised that it would be more then ten years before I need to start meds. what is the normal(predicted)life span of people diagnosed so young

Response from Dr. Moyle

Recent studies have suggested a near normal life expectancy assuming you can successful take and tolerate medication once it is needed and don't get any resistance or other infections along the way. So live a heathy lifestyle with healthy eating regular exercise and no smoking and start invesing a long and healthy future Best Wishes Graeme Moyle
