How advance has the meds for treating HIV come? Is it tru that as long as you take your meds that you can live as long as someone without?

Longer... It seems that new advances are made in the field of HIV treatments every day. If you, or someone you know has been told this you should be discussing the matter with your primary care doc; and an infectious disease doctor. And for your privacy the internet should not be the place of dicsussion for this topic.
Almost. Currently there are truly effective medications that control aids very well. Still, the medications have side effects and some of them contribute to earlier heart problems. There are other problems that are unique. Still, well-controlled aids patients are very close to non-infected patients.
