HIV life expectancy: Patients infected with HIV can live to a normal life-expectancy age (70s-80s) if they continue their HIV meds and regular medical follow-up.

A normal life: Essentially a near normal life. National data from the nih and cdc show the average life expectancy to be measured just several years short of what would otherwise be expected. It is essential though to have routine follow ups with a qualified infectious disease specialist.
