MRSA is the hospital infection most common. I am hoping this is what you are asking about. Yes you can lose weight with this. The weight lose is due to the infection making you tired. Most people who end up with MRSA will lose approx. 5-15 pounds. The infection makes you feel mostly like you have the flu. And if you have ever had the Flu you know that you rarely feel like eating. In combination with the fact the MRSA also gives you diarrhea you will lose weight. This weight can be gained back after successful treatment for the MRSA.
