HIV wasting syndrome also referred to as cachexia (general weakness) can diminish a person’s quality of life, cause worsening illness and increase the risk of death for people with HIV. HIV wasting syndrome is a progressive weight loss commonly accompanied by weakness, fever, nutritional deficiencies and diarrhea. Wasting can occur as a result of HIV infection itself but also is commonly associated with HIV-related opportunistic infections and cancers. HIV wasting syndrome is diagnosed in HIV-infected people who have unintentionally lost more than ten percent of their body weight. HIv wasting is more common among people with advanced HIV disease and AIDS.
