Bowel Ischemia: Consider getting angiogram of the mesentary arterial system. Continuous unexplained weight loss when other causes are ruled out may be due to intermittent ischemic attacks which may not have significant signs or symptoms. Especially if other vascular risk factors are present, such as cigarettes smoking, family or medical history of vascular insufficiency & advance age. Consult a vascular surgeon.
