In short:
Among people younger than 50, having HIV is associated with a faster rate of lung function decline, aidsmap reports. Having ever had a CD4 count below 200 was also associated with steeper decrease in lung function in a recent large, long-term study.

Jing Sun, MD, of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, presented findings from the SHIELD study of 2,216 people (1,048 had HIV and 1,168 did not) at the 2020 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Boston earlier this month. Between 2009 and 2017, the participants received lung function tests semiannually.
