Jessie10,

Listen...HIV is when you have a higher t-cell count of 300-400 or over.

you are diagnosed with Aids if your t-cells go lower than 200.

When you have aids and are not on a specific theaputic med regimn then you are more likely to be exposed to life-threatening diseases.....

You are also exposed to life threatening disease when you are diagnosed with HIV-Only difference is that your body is able to help fight(IMMUNUE SYSTEM IS A BIT STRONGER) of infection, disease and other oppo. infections....

Exercise and diet can help play a KEY ROLE in keeping a healthy cd4/t-cell count and a lower viral load, although, even with healthy diet and exercise the HIV virus can progress....Meaning that your t-cells start to deplete and your viral load goes up....When this happens, your doc(HIV SPECIALIST) usually will discuss with the patient possibility of going on medication to stop the HIV from progressing to AIDS.

I hope that this has clarified some of the questions as I am writing I too am getting confused as to what exactly you want to know...I think that others as well as myself have tried to answer your question as good as we possibly could...Good luck to you!!!! ~#1Jessie~ =)........
