cmv question - please answer this
Nov 12, 2003

this is not hiv specific, but it is wasting related.

i realize that cmv can cause wasting when added to an already hiv infected person.

what about a person with prolonged salmonella infection? could the cmv create similar wasting effects on a person with an already burdoned immune system due to various bacterial infections?

Response from Dr. Moyle

Please note this is a forum to help people living with HIV.

Any chronic infection could contribute to weight loss over time.
