Likewise, can AIDS go away?
Some viruses, such as HIV, never go away. When the CD4 count drops below 200, a person's immune system is severely weakened, and that person is then diagnosed with AIDS, even if he or she has not become sick from other infections. AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and is caused by HIV.
Also, how long can a person live with AIDS? People with AIDS who don't take medication only live about 3 years, even less if they get a dangerous infection. But HIV can still be treated at this stage.
In this way, what do AIDS stand for?
AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome: Acquired means you can get infected with it; Immune Deficiency means a weakness in the body's system that fights diseases. Syndrome means a group of health problems that make up a disease.
