Do you recommend taking gltamine for wasting/weight loss and if so how many grams per day?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Glutamine has not been well studied to date in HIV wasting, but there is some evidence of adding to muscele mass. I don't think it could hurt if taken in the recommended daily doses. Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
