Weight loss: unexplained weight loss should always be investigated, and never ignored. If this is happening to you, you should see your doctor for further evaluation. Have you had a colonoscopy in the last five years? Even with a factor V deficiency, everyone should have colon screening at age 50. See your doctor to look into this. Do not delay. Good luck.
