Yes -but ...: Knowing your absolute cd 4 count would help. By taking your truvada (emtricitabine and tenofovir) and Efavirenz daily, having an undetectable viral load, practicing safe sex, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle which includes regularly scheduled visits to your HIV specialist, there is no reason why you should not live a longer life.
