How long do you have to live after having aids??
when a person has aids or hiv how long do they have b4 they died and whats the longest they can live?????

2 years after being diagnosed . hope that clears it up for you : )

Not too long. Some less than two years.

Having HIV and AIDs is a little bit different. Being HIV positive means that you contracted the virus. A person can be HIV positive for 10 or more years without being diagnosed as having AIDs. Having AIDs means that the person's condition is worse and their immune system is now suffering severely. There are many new drugs to keep an HIV positive person from getting AIDs. People who have full-blown AIDs generally do not live more than a few years after being diagnosed. Simple infections such as the common cold could kill a person with AIDs because of their damaged immune system. Many people with AIDs die from pneumonia.

Depends on their CD4 count

It all depends upon what kind of treatment they receive and how aggressively they use it. People have been known to live 25 years after being diagnosed with HIV.

It just depends on the person, the doctor's, and the treatment. Some people live for many years, some only live for a short time. I think the real question is, why does anyone diagnosed with HIV or AIDS want to live? If it ever happens to me, I won't be going for treatment.

It varies by the individual. AIDS does not actually kill someone, its a virus that completely depletes the immune system. The body cannot fight off a simple infection. Pneumonia or the simple flu can be the culprits that an AIDS patient would die from, not the actual AIDS virus. HIV on the other hand is manageable by medications and an infected person can live a very long time.

First of all, HIV and AIDS are different.

HIV is the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. It attacks the immune system.

AIDS is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. AIDS is caused by HIV and is diagnosed by meeting several specific criteria established by the CDC.

As to how long someone with HIV or AIDS will live, well, as almost everybody else has said, "It depends".

Several factors off the top of my head which would affect survival are:

* The quality and type of doctor
* The quality of life of the patient
* The activity level of the patient
* The patient taking his or her medication on time every time
* Access to medications
* HIV/AIDS Education level of the patient *and* the doctor
* Plain ol' genetics

And assorted other factors.

Personally, I know of several people who have had AIDS (not just HIV infection) for upwards of 20 years and are still going strong.

There is no hard and fast rule anymore about how long someone's going to live after being diagnosed with AIDS or HIV.

It all depends on your treatment and howw you respond to it


HIV is now a somewhat managable disease. With proper medication and a healthy lifestyle, a person can live for years with HIV. Once it becomes AIDS the situation is more serious, but death is not necessarily imminent. And if I'm not mistaken it's not actually AIDS that kills the person but the other infections that the body can't fight off because the immune system is surpressed.

it's different, from 6 months to 10 years.during this time they feel completely healthy, then after it they start to get all kinds of diseases, from simple ones till dangerous ones.their white cells which are responsible for the security of the body won't work anymore.
i read alot about aids since im gooing to start microbiology or cellular biology courses.
