Why do you lose weight all of a sudden, suspicious disease?
Many people do it except for weight for beauty and health reasons. Losing weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise is something to be proud of and delighted about, but if you suddenly lose weight without any reason, you may suspect certain diseases.
Depending on the side effects of treatment or the location of the tumor, cancer patients may lose weight due to poor appetite and eating disorders. Also, signs of losing weight despite gaining appetite, losing weight even if you eat the same as usual, or losing weight because you have lost appetite and can’t eat at all can be an important measure of whether you have a disease or not. Let’s find out what other diseases you can suspect when you lose weight for no reason other than cancer.
If you gain an appetite but lose weight, hyperthyroidism.
Hyperthyroidism is one of the causes of rapid weight loss in the body. It is a disease that causes rapid weight loss symptoms because the body’s metabolism burns calories as the thyroid hormone “tyrosine” is overproduced.
If you develop this condition, you will experience increased hunger and lost weight despite increased appetite. In addition to weight loss, it is accompanied by heart palpitation, heat exhaustion, and difficulty falling asleep. If these symptoms and sudden weight loss occur, you may suspect a thyroid problem.
If your body is tired and you go to the bathroom often, diabetes.
One of the early symptoms of diabetes is rapid weight loss. When diabetes develops, you lose weight and become tired even if you eat the same as usual. Also, if your blood sugar goes up a lot, you get thirsty and drink water often, which increases the amount of urine and increases the number of times you go to the bathroom.
Because the body does not absorb glucose properly, most of them escape to urine and develop thirst repeatedly. Diabetes can also cause muscle loss, which can lead to weight loss.
Lacking appetite, mental health problems.
One side effect of depression is loss of appetite. There is a link between mental health and weight. Because the desire to eat food disappears, it naturally leads to weight loss. However, even if these physical changes occur, it can be difficult to detect that weight is being lost due to depressing emotions.
Depression can be accompanied by symptoms such as increased irritation, increased sensitivity, lethargy, more difficulty in making decisions than usual, and developing sleep disorders. In addition to depression, even when there is a strong fear of gaining weight, the amount of food you eat decreases and you lose weight. Since rejecting food is a serious health threatening problem, we should try to get rid of food rejection through treatment such as expert counseling.
Digestive diseases, accompanied by various symptoms.
Inflammatory bowel disease, which repeats abnormal inflammation and recurrence in the Minister, can also cause a rapid weight loss. Typical inflammatory bowel diseases include ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, which can cause inflammation throughout the gastrointestinal tract, from mouth to anus.
If you get these diseases, you will lose weight because it is difficult to properly absorb the nutrition of the food you eat. Symptoms appear and disappear repeatedly, accompanied by abdominal pain, diarrhea, general incapacity, and anus pain, and weight loss. Therefore, if you lose weight rapidly for no particular reason, you need to suspect inflammatory bowel disease rather than considering it as a temporary symptom.
You can also lose weight if you develop ‘celliac’ which is an autoimmune disease associated with gluten. Celiac disease is a hereditary allergic disease that occurs in the small intestine, and when you eat food containing gluten, abdominal bloating and diarrhea occur. These symptoms can be repeated and weight loss may occur.
Also, if you have problems with your pancreas, an organ that produces digestive enzymes, you can suddenly lose weight. If you feel nauseous, stomachache, and have a color bowel movement that is hard to see when you eat greasy food, you are likely to have problems with your digestive system, so you should visit the hospital for proper treatment.
If you lose a lot of weight, it’s important to measure your weight accurately first. In fact, even though you haven’t lost weight, you often see weight on your legs or face. It is important to measure accurately whether the weight loss is severe enough to suspect the disease. In order to measure your weight properly, it is recommended to measure your weight after going to the bathroom in the morning with nothing but underwear, inhaling and exhaling. If the weight loss is clear, you should visit the hospital to find the cause disease.
If the cause disease is identified and under treatment, efforts are needed to increase food intake to regain weight. You should eat small portions often and get enough protein to make you feel less hungry. Also, if nutrient supplementation is needed, it is also possible to take adequate nutritional supplements or supplements together.
