Full blown aids

Dec 2, 2007

I just found out my oldest brother has aids. How long do people with full blown aids usually live??? :( Thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That is too complicated of a question to answer directly. Longeviity and natural history of HIV infection (with AIDS) depends on many factors including age, other ongoing medical, mental health, and substance abuse problems, response to HIV treatment, among others. Many people do very well and are living long good quality lives if these issues are attended to and HIV meds are taken faithfully.
