Life Expectancy

Jul 15, 2001

Doctor, I seem to have noticed two conflicting answers you gave regarding life expectancy with Aids and treatment. One you said it is possible to live a normal life expectancy, then the other you said that it is possible to live 10 yrs but data is accumulating. My doctor who was previously at NIH, told me that with today's treatment , and it is always advancing that most can live a normal life span provided they comply with treatment. My question is does anyone really know what life expectancy is?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

These are not conflicting answers.

HIV express testing
Lymphocyte Count vs. CD4
