LONGIVITY

HOW LONG CAN A PERSON EXPECT TO LIVE WITH HIV AND MEDICATION

Response from Dr. Henry

Life expectancy with HIV infection depends on many individual factors including HIV related (CD4 count, success with antiretrovirals), age, risk for other health problems (smoking, cancer, heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, kidney disease), family history (genetics). Patients with good CD4 count (> 500) doing well on their HIV medications have had steadily improving life expectancies generally still somewhat less than matched HIV negative persons but some studies have shown comparable life expectancy.
