"How long does a person with Hiv, live... really don't sugar coat it."
Used to be, only 10 years. But with the advent of the drug cocktail, well nobody is quite sure. Consider that Magic Johnson was diagnosed back in 1991. He's still alive today almost 20 years later. Chances are good that the drug cocktail has turned what used to be a deadly disease into a chronic one.
The drug cocktail keep a person HIV positive, the disease apparently doesn't become full blown AIDS, so that the patient has the disease, but few if any of the secondary diseases and infections that make AIDS deadly.
Well it really all depends on that persons immune system, i've known some people who lives with hiv for 20yrs and some for 5yrs so it really all depends because everyone body is different
Well, it depends on a lot of factors, mainly the level of the immunity, when you are diagnosed. This is measured by the CD4 count, (cells that are involved in immunity). The lower the count the less your immunity and the more likely the patient is too get sick.
With the introduction of HAART (Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy). The multiplication of the HI Virus is decreased and chances of survival increase.
Without treatment there are fast progressors and slow why?, is not really known, but strains of the virus are thought to be the factor. For example, HIV2 in West Africa has a very slow progress as compared to HIV1 in Southen Africa
