Weight Loss Is a Symptom of What Illness

Weight Loss Is a Symptom of What Illness
I am a very active individual. I eat all the time. I can never gain weight and over the past few months I have been noticing I am getting really small. I have always been a smaller build but not this small in a very long time. Don't want to sound like a baby to my wife and complain.??

Re: Weight Loss Is a Symptom of What Illness

Apart from the weight loss, are there any other symptoms? Weight loss happens in many conditions, but not usually in the absence of any other signs of illness. You may have an overactive thyroid gland. Other symptoms of this may be hand tremor, rapid pulse, diarrhea, weakness of arms and legs. A blood test can determine this. Get it checked out if you are concerned. Sera.
