Life expectancy
Sep 28, 2004

Thank you for your prompot response. I have another question: What is the life expectancy of someone that has AIDS?

Response from Dr. Pierone

The life expectancy for someone with AIDS should be near normal. This assumes that this person has access to antiretroviral therapy and the ability to take it without fail. I say near normal, not normal because of the uncertainty involved with predictions 50 years into the future.
