In brief: Loss of appetite

Common causes of loss of appetite: chronic low grade nausea (eg, with acid reflux, ulcer), infections (viral [hiv, hepatitis, etc] and bacterial), severe stress or depression, adverse effects of other medications you are taking; chronic severe constipation, and underactive thyroid.
