Full blown AIDS

Apr 28, 2003

Why is it that people are always talking and giving advice on HIV positive. No one ever seems to dwell much on full blown AIDS. If one is diagnosed with AIDS and his viral load has become undetectable and the t cell count is above 300,Does this persons diagnosis ever change from full Blown AIDS?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

From a biological sense, the immune system would have recovered sufficiently, such that the person would not be considered at significant risk for developing opportunistic infections associated with HIV/AIDS. This would have been the real risk of having AIDS.
