Weight loss: that is unexplained indicates a need for you to see your doctor. He/she MAY do some blood work. Perhaps thyroid or other hormone levels are off. Your doc will figure it out and help. Peace and good health.

Weight: A 10 pound weight loss is significant. The reason can be multifactorial. CAN be diet, gastrointestinal,ENDOCRINE or behavioral. You should talk to your doctor or you could talk to a Healthtap doctor.
