My five year old has lost seven pounds in the last 3 months due to chronic diarrhea. Is this a dangerous amount of weight for her to have lost?

Significant-yes: The average 5 yo female weighs just above 40 lb and a 7 lb loss over 3 months is significant. It might not be dangerous in the short term, unless paired with unusual fluid losses, but deserves proper evaluation and treatment. Your PCP or pediatrician could start this but referral to a children's specialty center may be needed to track down the problem. ...Read more

If drinking coffee can cause diarrhea, is that mean it may help losing weight?

If drinking coffee can cause diarrhea, is that mean it may help losing weight?

Not really: If you get diarrhea after drinking coffee, your stomach may be sensitive to it. Any weight you lose with diarrhea is likely from fluid loss -- and can easily return once the stools stop. For healthy weight loss, you need to eat whole foods (no junk) and also exercise. Realize also that the composition of your body is more important than the number on the scale -- muscle is more firm than fat. ...Read more

Tested HIV neg@19wks. Girlfriend and I have same problems @ same time. Loss weight. Coughing. Headache. Diarrhea. For 7 months now. Is this HIV?

Wrong concern: With a recent negative HIV test, your diarrhea isn't caused by HIV even if you've turned positive. What concerns me is your tobacco use -- please try to stop -- your carrying a diagnosis of Graves's which is a killer if not managed properly and is infamous for causing both diarrhea and the palpitations and perhaps high systolic pressure you note. You deserve a relationship with a physican-guide. ...Read more

How to cope with morning diarrhea that occurs when you eat milk, egg or oily food? Too heavy of a breakfast may sometimes cause diarrhea as well.

Avoidance...: Symptoms may be related to lactose intolerance or gallbladder problems. I suggest either trying a lactaid supplement with breakfast or avoiding dairy altogether to see if symptoms improve. Secondly, i'd try eliminating heavy fatty food to see what impact that may have. If symptoms persist, go see a GI specialist. Good luck! ...Read more
