Internal Medicine - Gastroenterology
In brief: Weight loss and PUD
Involuntary weight loss is always considered a clinical "red flag.
" that being said, it is not a surprise that peptic ulcer disease patients may experience less interest in eating due to the pain that meals engender. Under such circumstance, weight loss may follow. However, stomach ulcers may on occasion arise in the setting of cancer, severe physiologic stress, trauma. Don't ignore "red flags.".
