Thumbs down IS SHE SICK?

My friend is always kind of tired. She is five foot three and weighs 73 pounds. I knew she was underweight, but I didn't know that it was dangerous.
One time we were both sick with the flu, and my mom took care of both of us. When my mom took my temperature, it was 101. When my mom took my friend's temperature, it was 80. No wonder she is always cold! We went to the doctor to see if it was a mistake, but it wasn't. The doctor says it was okay. Can you believe that! He changed his mind though, when he found out that her pulse was 155 b.p.m., and that was her resting heart rate! Nobody seems to care. Is this normal? If not, what should I do?

Systematic candida or parasites could cause this, what is her diet like?

Unhappy

She rarely ever eats, and when she does, she eats vegetables and fruits. She tends to get dizzy real easy, and I think it is because she has a very low appetite. She always looks tired and extremely sick. Should I be worried?

Sounds like anorexia to me. I would openly talk to her about it. Then if it is anorexia help her to find a support group, therapist, divine intervention for this if she is open to it. Hope this helps.

U might want to bring this up in the other boards more related to her health. Don't put it off helping her ( for whatever reason) u might regret it later.
