life expectency?

Dec 15, 2013

My cousins husband was recently diagnosed with full blown aids and taxoplasmosis he was also diagnosed with hepatitis b about 8 yrs ago..his CD4 count is at 34 and had a brain mri which showed lesions on the brain because of the infection...he was started on Hiv meds ..I would like to know his the life expectancy?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Always a difficult question to answer. Many factors come into play including age, underlying genetics regarding immune function, and other ongoing medical illnesses that all can affect prognosis. The good news is that the HIV and toxoplasmosis infections are both treatable, and the damage to the immune system is reversible.

can aids pop up like 3 years later?
Add psych meds or just switch hiv meds?
