How Long Can a Person Live with AIDS?

Q:

How long can a person live with AIDS?

A:

People living with AIDS may live a very long time.

If you are diagnosed with AIDS, the first thing you need to do is to learn how to keep a healthy mind instead of think that you are going to die.

Don’t turn to drug or alcohol abuse. Turn to your family for support and see a doctor for professional therapy advice.

Stick to antiretroviral therapy and you may find a significant increase in CD4 cells in your body, which means your immune system becomes stronger.

The survival rate for people living with HIV has risen greatly since the early days of the pandemic. According to a 2013 study, 78% of people with HIV died from AIDS between 1988 and 1995. Between 2005 and 2009, the number fell to 15%.
