Response from Dr. Henry

HIV+ persons who have access to good medical care and effective HIV treatment have a steadily improving life expectancy. Studies vary but generally the estimated life expectancy ranges from 10 years less to fairly similar life expectancy to control HIV negative populations. Many factors influence life expectancy besides HIV infection including presence of liver, kidney problems, life style (exercise and eating habits) , and many other factors. KH
