In this question you said the average person with hiv lives 8-10 years is that somone that is on meds or not on meds. I was under the assumtion that the meds appear to change this number dramtically and may even allow a normal life span.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your comments and question.
Sorry for the confusion, but you are correct, that the medications do change the life span and might indeed permit a near normal life span.
