HIV for 13 years and no meds

Jul 19, 2002

I have a friend that has had HIV for the past 13 years and has not been taking any meds for the last 7 years. Not too sure about his blood tests. He looks healthy and is never sick. So I was wondering what's the longest someone can live or has lived on HIV and AIDS ?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

We don't know the final answer. There are now some people who have been living for 20 years or longer with HIV infection.

Shingles and HIV
Elisa/Western vs VL /CD4
