Life Expectancy?
Sep 12, 2012

Hi Drs;

Being experts in this HIV, could you please give me your estimation of life expectancy in number of years (plus or minus 5) for a 30 year old male, infected in 2012?

All others factors being near normal..


Response from Dr. Young

Helo and thanks for posting.

I don't like trying to predict a particular number of years, but rather tell all of my newly diagnosed patients that if they stay engaged in medical care, adhere to appropriately prescribed medications that they can expect to live a normal life expectancy. Indeed, this recent study from Denmark concluded just this point.

I hope that helps. Be well. BY
