CD4 114 vl 367000

Oct 2, 2002

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.
