Treating wasting in patient with history of lymphoma
Jan 21, 2003

Dear Dr Dieterich:

If someone had lymphoma over 4 years ago (now in remission) and they are now experiencing wasting syndrome, would you prescribe anabolics or growth hormone? Thanks!

Nelson Vergel

Response from Dr. Dieterich

I don't see any relation between lymphoma and anabolics. That is not one of their usual complications. If you need them then I think it would be a reasonable risk. Good luck! DTD
