In brief: Not normal

That much weight loss and diarrhea needs a thorough evaluation.
What can help depends on the final diagnosis. Good luck!

You could have malabsorption syndrome making it difficult for you gastrointestinal tract to absorb nutrients from food. I would see you doc for blood and stool tests and possibly ct scan of your abdomen. (www.Chrisohmd.Com).
