Hippocrates described a syndrome of wasting and progressive inanition among patients who were ill and dying. Derived from the Greek words kakos, meaning “bad things,” and hexus, meaning “state of being,” the term cachexia has been used to describe weight loss. From an, meaning “without,” and orexis, meaning “appetite, desire,” the word anorexia is used to characterize loss of appetite. Cachexia, a hypercatabolic state that is defined by an accelerated loss of skeletal muscle in the context of a chronic inflammatory response, is best described in the setting of cancer but is also seen in other advanced chronic illnesses including AIDS, heart failure, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) [ 1 ]. Although body composition changes are not identical in all of these disease states, the term cachexia is used in all of these settings.
This process is natural and helps to maintain male/female hormone balance. Use of anabolic androgenic steroids can disrupt or otherwise interfere with this balance .
