What is my life expectancy if I start ARVs today?
How long am i expected to live if i start ARVs today? I tested HIV+ last September.
Thanks for your email. It’s good you are considering treatment. Modern HIV treatment is very effective.
Do you know your CD4 count and viral? These are markers used to monitor your HIV.
So long as you start treatment before your CD4 count drops below 350 your life expectancy is very good, similar to somebody who is not HIV positive.
There are lots of previous questions about life expectancy here.
