Suggest treatment for night sweats

My husband has had night sweats for the past year and no doctor seems concerned about it or what might be causing it. He has been losing weight the past six months and now has a low hemoglobin. Our internist referred him to a gasteroenterolgist and they have done several tests but cannot find any cause for the blood count. He is also very tired all the time. We wonder if we should be looking for some other cause.
