Q. I became weak recently. Doctor told that I have HIV. Did my life end here? How long will I stay?
Ans: HIV is not end of life. HIV is a chronic disease just like BP,Sugar. HIV can be controlled with medication just like BP and sugar. However one should practice healthy habits. One should have healthy food, stay away from smoking,drinking and have peaceful mind. One shouldn’t strain, and should sleep 6hours in the night. One should live in healthy environment. Use Anti Retro Viral medicines accordingly and this should be used when CD4 cell count is less than 200. If these are followed one can live 15-20 years without any worry. In few years from now medicines for eradicating HIV will come. So don’t worry.
