Re: Weight Loss Is a Symptom of What Illness

Weight loss can be a symptom that is common to hundreds of different illnesses. It's rare that you can diagnose an illness from just one symptom.

For me, it was a symptom of acute renal failure!!

If you're having weight loss, get thee to a doctor ASAP!

Get a complete blood count (CBC), thyroid test, blood sugar test, hormone test, and whatever else they recommend.
