|HIV meds treatment & AIDS
May 23, 2009
I'm still very unsure about this. I understand that if an HIV-positive person who does not undergo treatment or takes his medication his condition would definitely progresses to AIDS. HOWEVER, my question is, would he still advances to AIDS even though he diligently sticks to his medications in the hopes to control (and reduces) his viral load and increase his CD4 levels?
Please advice, A very (VERY) concern guy.

Hello Concern Guy,
Persons who have access to, and adhere to properly selected HIV medications don't need to progress to AIDS. Indeed, AIDS conditions and risks reverse in the vast majority of persons, even if they are first diagnosed with advanced disease.
Hope this helps, BY
