HIV patients may suffer old-age symptoms earlier
July 27, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- As people live longer with AIDS, new health questions are being raised.
By the end of the decade, the government estimates more than half of Americans living with HIV will be over 50.
That's good news, but researchers at the International AIDS Conference this week said it is also a challenge.
There's growing evidence that people who have spent decades battling the virus may be aging prematurely.
Numerous studies are examining how heart disease, thinning bones, and a list of other health problems are hitting many people with HIV when they're only in their 50s.
