Unexplained Weight Loss or Loss of Appetite

Unintentional weight loss is a decrease in body weight that is not voluntary. In other words, you did not try to loss the weight by dieting or exercising. Any illness can affect a previously hearty appetite. If the illness is treatable, the appetite should return when the condition is cured. Loss of appetite can cause unintentional weight loss.

This could be related to other symptoms such as diarrhoea or abdominal pain, but should always be taken very seriously. It may indicate an underlying serious problem that requires further investigation.
