aids dementia

Jul 25, 2007

my brother has been giving 6 months to live. his tcells are b24 idon't know what to expect or how to help him will his body justshut down.

Response from Dr. Horwath

Doctors will sometimes make estimates about how long someone has to live. Their estimates are not always right, but you should take your brother's condition very seriously. With so few T-cells he as at a grave risk to develop an infection that his body cannot fight. It is often an infection that is the final illness that causes the death of a person with AIDS. The best way to help him is to let him know that you will be there with him.

Do u always contract HIV everytime You have sex?
