Too thin: I would suggest that you seek a full comprehensive physical examination being thyroid studies to see if you might be slightly hyperthyroid. Also other endocrine studies can be done that your internal medicine specialists office to determine if there are other causes of potential reasons for being excessively thin at 28 yrs of age.
