How and why exactly do AIDS patients die?

Depending on how severe the infection at exposure is, patients usually develop symptoms at around 7 years after the entry of the virus.

Symptoms can be in the form of any single or multiple system involvement. Infection occurs which either does not respond to routine treatment because of resistant strains or, if it responds, it does so after a long time only to recur. Such repeated infections debilitate the body leading to death. The drugs too, often produce rare reactions in AIDS patients not commonly seen otherwise. Some of the commonly encountered symptoms in HIV positive patients would be as follows.
 
 

RESPIRATORY GASTROINTESTINAL NERVOUS SKIN
       
Cough Persistent diarrhoea (by common and rare pathogens) Headache Xerosis (Dry Skin)
Breathlessness  Difficulty in swallowing or eating Altered Personality Purpuric Spots 
Rapid Breathing  Perianal discomfort Lethargy Hair loss/ Greying of hair
Blood stained cough   Dementia  
Effusions in Lung cavity   Convulsions Bacterial Viral infections
Fungal
    Meningitis  
    Visual Impairment  
[It is the causative organisms of these common symptoms, which are important in HIV positive].

There are a few conditions, which were extremely rare till now, the occurrence of which almost confirms AIDS and are called markers.
A few of these could be
a)     Recurrent/ widespread Herpes Zoster
b)     Oesophageal Candidiasis
c)      Kaposis Sarcoma in a young person
d)     Oral Hairy Leucoplakia

can aids transmit through saliva as mentioned? then we can't share the same utensils like glass/plate, right?

THIS IS WRONG. MY COUSIN HAS AIDS AND WE LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSE FOR THE LAST TEN OR SO YEARS. WE USE SAME GLASSES TO DRINK AND SAME PLATES TO EAT, NOBODY IN FAMILY GOT AIDS FROM HER!!


AIDS IS TRANSMITTED THROUGH BODY FLUIDS LIKE BLOOD AND SEMEN. NOT SALIVA!!

Symptoms of aids vary in different people and it depends on the condition of the immune system of the infected person. An infected person looks normal and healthy initially. Healthy immune system can keep off aids infection.

Being aware of the symptoms can help in treatment and cure of the disease. It also paves way for finding new cures for AIDS. Soon AIDS will be curable.

i am an american educated person. but, i feel that some of the words to describe the illness and in the article in general were to big and difficult to understand. i do not have a medical background and i am sure alot of other people reading this article don't either. simple wording, in terms that are easy to understand, i feel would be better.

thank you.
