life expectancy
Jan 3, 2008

whatr is the life expectancy of someone with hiv and hep c. My brother has had hiv for about 15 years and contracted hep c about 8 years ago. please give me a number.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Really can't give you a number. I have patients with HIV/HCV who have been cured of their hepatitis C on therapy so I suspect they will enjoy long lives while they take their antiretroviral therapy.

Want to get pregnannt and have concerns
