Question

I’ve been positive for 10 years, what’s my life expectancy?

I was diagnosed with HIV when I was 50, it’s now been 10 years. At the time of my diagnoses my CD4 was less than 200, it’s now well within normal levels. My viral load is undetectable. How long will I live for?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

No one can predict how long someone will live for, however if your HIV is under control (which is sounds like it is) there’s no reason why your life expectancy will be influenced by your HIV. Please see Q 10 here: https://i-base.info/qa/what-are-the-most-asked-questions
