Medical evaluation: Is indicated if this was unintended weight loss.
Ive been losing weight for the past 6 months as im losing weight ive lost lots of my hair if i were to go to the doctor what would they do?

First of all: a Complete Physical exam with Complete Blood Count and Urinalysis. Then I would obtain THYROID TESTS (also blood tests for the most part) since this "sound like' your problem! Hope this helps!
