My dad has sarcardosis, a lung disease. And recently diagnosed with AIDS. his cd4+ is 114 and his vl=367,000. How bad is he. He feels sick all the time and did not respond well to sustiva. He also has hepatits B. How long does he have to live?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
Although he has AIDS by definition, and is at risk of developing opportunistic infections, he still has some immune system reserve and should respond well to a HIV regimen that he can tolerate. I could not comment on his prognosis.
