Glutamine in HIV: Some studies support the use of glutamine to prevent loss of or maintain body mass in patients with hiv/aids, as well as promote healing and recovery following surgery or critical illness. Other studies have not shown any benefit. It should not be taken in patients with mental disorders, epilepsy, liver or kidney failure or an allergy to monosodium glutamate (msg). Always verify with your dr.
