I’m on ARVs, what is my life expectancy?
I am on ARVs, my CD4 is 544 and VL is 50.
I am 40 years old and have been HIV positive for 7 years.
What is my life expectancy?
Thanks for your email. Your CD4 count and viral load are both very good showing that treatment is working well for you and that you have a strong immune system.
With treatment life expectancy for HIV positive people is very good, especially with such a good CD4 count. It’s not possible to predict how long any one person will live as there are many factors involved- including health, diet, where you live and so on. But in terms of HIV and the fact you are on treatment with good test results your life expectancy should be similar to that of an HIV negative person.
