Vegetarians often become deficient in zinc and low zinc can cause low appetite. Try taking a quality multivitamin and perhaps extra zinc as zinc picolinate. But please see a doctor for an evaluation as there are many possible causes for your symptoms such as anemia or parasites. ...Read more

Weak metabolism?: If by weak metabolism, you mean slow metabolism, then the question is why do you think it is slow?

Waiting on results from echo. I woke up tonight feeling very nauseated, feeling faint weak, had to lay on floor to feel better three times. What to do?

Get calm.: You just had an echo. You are very concerned because you were nauseated and had to lay down 3 times earlier. Try to get calm as much as possible. You may be concerned about a heart attack but this could be a COPD exacerbation too. For either diagnosis you should try to relax and find peace this could help. ...Read more
