Does HIV always lead to AIDS? Will HIV cut a life short? What are the viral load count and CD4 counts if you are at the early stages?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
HIV infection is likely to progress to AIDS in the absence of HIV treatment and therefore cut ones life span short. In general CD4 counts of > 350 or viral loads < 100,000 are considered to be general benchmarks of early or less severe HIV infection.
