Weight loss : If you are constantly losing weight that is not good. 1st you need to eat healthy balanced diet with small frequent meals and snacks every 3-4 hours, see your doctor for a complete physical exam, request a referral to endocrinologist & a dietitian & hopefully they figure out why you're loosening weight.
