May 17, 2006

Response from Dr. Young

Dear Faithfully,

Thanks for your post; your's is not a banal question at all (I'm not sure that I've used that word in years of writing on the forum).

Yes, for recently +'s who have access to antiretroviral therapies (and who are able to be adherent to medications), it's entirely possible to not progress to having an AIDS complication. Indeed, I'd plan for a long, healthy life and retirement.

Good luck, BY
