does everyone die from Aids?
| Response from Dr. Boyle
No, many people living with HIV can live a pretty normal life and may have a relatively normal lifespan if they take care of themselves, get good medical care, and take the medications prescribed by their doctor exactly as directed. In many respects, if the patient does these things, HIV becomes a chronic disease that can be controlled by medications. If not, then there will eventually be trouble with HIV/AIDS.
