If you don't take medicine for HIV or AIDS how long do you live?
Response from Dr. Conway
In the days before effective treatments were available, the average time from the initial diagnosis of HIV infection in someone without symptoms and a relatively well preserved immune system to the development of full blown AIDS was 10-12 years. With full blown AIDS, the life expectancy in the absence of any treatment is, on average, 2 years.
