hello doc, how long can i live with HIV2? i heard there is very limited meds for this strain? so what should i do now? T cell 700.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In general, people can do very well with HIV-2 infection, and some without treatment. There are some HIV-1 drugs that are effective. I don't think you need to do anything right now, but may want to consult with someone who has seen or treated people with HIV-2 infection.

Did i have TB with this chest x-ray result (PPD positive)
Dry Skin - Anxiety
