Whats the prognosis of someone with hiv/aids how long will i likely live i am treatment naive.

Response from Dr. Pierone

I think that the prognosis is quite good. People with HIV can live a normal or near-normal life span as long as they can adhere to a regimen on a long term basis. The typical HIV medication regimen involves 3 different medications (a few pills) once or twice a day. Side effects are manageable, and many persons can defer treatment until CD4 counts drop below 350 (or maybe lower)
