One question I would like to ask Angelina is how she managed the transition from HIV being a terminal diagnosis to a chronic illness and when did she personally feel that she would probably not die of AIDS and would live as long as most other people?

I know that, for me and my husband, this was quite a long process. Having to wait to see how long the new medications (protease inhibitors) would keep the virus under control and be an effective treatment for HIV, was a process that took many years.

A question I am unable to find an answer to is this ;

What is the average CD4 count for someone in relation to age ?

I assume the count would tend rise from birth , peak at young adulthood and then gradually decline with age ?

But I'm unable to find any information on this because it appears that no research has been done on a very basic and easily investigated subject .

An average CD4 count for age would be a guide to know if your count was good bad or indifferent .
