Unexplained Weight Loss
Inexplicable weight loss could be attributed to many causes; these might be medical or non-medical. In any case, you shouldn’t ignore it if this situation persists. Weight loss can result from a decrease in body fluid, muscle mass, fat, or illnesses such as diabetes. One of the best ways to prevent and treat muscle loss is to add more protein and vitamin D to your diet.
There are other and more serious causes of weight loss like cancer, HIV, gastoentritis, and bowel diseases. If you or your loved one has lost more than five percent of their body weight over a period of six months, there is a high likelihood of cancer, and which needs immediate diagnosis.
Another most common reason behind sudden unintentional weight loss is an endocrine disorder, such as hyperthyroidism and overactive thyroid. In such disorders, patients usually suffer restlessness, sweating, increased appetite, and difficulty concentrating. Furthermore, depression and other psychiatric conditions can also lead to sudden weight loss.
