IS IT TOO LATE
Aug 10, 2006

My Sister Has known she was HIV for now 4 years and never taken any medication, she has never been ill, but has lost a lot of weight now, she is suffering from diarrhoea at the moment, is it too late for her to get any medical help, to make her healthy again?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

It's really never too late to get care for HIV. Current medications for first-line treatment of HIV are highly effective, even among persons with very advanced disease.

Your sister clearly needs to get under experienced HIV healthcare and probably, in the near future, start on combination treatment.

Best of luck, thanks for reading. BY
