Welcome to HCM.
THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER REASONS FOR not taking food and weight loss. Malignancy, Tuberculosis, Digestive tract problem, Psychiatric problems are some.
So you need not worry about HIV for your friend. You take him to a physician and he will examine and test for all the possibilities including HIV.
He will get well soon.
