|What are the symptoms of the end of Aides?
Nov 19, 2015
My brother was diagnosed with HIV back in 1991. In 2004 he was told he had full blown aides. Recently he has become confused and unstable, he falls a lot. Could he be near death?
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
People who were once diagnosed with AIDS, but who have access to and take medications have an excellent prognosis.
It's really difficult for me to tell you about your brother's prognosis, or current diagnosis, as there are many things that can cause mental status changes and confusion.
I'd suggest reaching out to your brother's care providers to find out more about what's going on and how you can be of assistance.
Best of health to you and him, BY
