Avatar f tn If you had been losing weight due to it then it would have become obvious within 6 months of starting phenobarbital.Weight loss may/may not be related to it. If there is a significant weight loss then you need to keep other possibilities in mind like stress, depression, Crohn’s disease, hookworm infestation, diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, any cancer or malignancy. Losing weight without diet or calorie reduction can indicate some serious illness. You need to take it seriously.
Avatar f tn I know a lot of people lose weight while sick, sometimes to a great degree depending upon the type of illness, but usually stop after the illness is gone. The weight loss is probably the cause of your delayed period, but your gyno will hopefully shed some light on what is going on with whatever tests she runs.
Avatar f tn s losing weight quickly), shortness of breath that stops him from doing anything. Walking from one room to the next makes him tired enough to need a nap. He fainted at night and hit his head. He got progressively worse over 3 months. Every test came back negative. 4 weeks ago his shortness of breath put him in hospital. While he was talking to the Dr he stated repeating the same thing over and over, then became incomprehensable, then aggressive and violent. Four male nurses had to hold him down.

Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for any help.

Avatar n tn I am 54 years old and having a difficult time losing weight. During the past 8-9 months, I have not been able to continue my typical exercise regimen due to knee pain and surgery. As a result, I have gained the nine pounds I lost and added 7 more.Approximately two weeks ago, I started to exercise again, managing to workout four days each week, although no change in weight. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Let's see a 10 yr old cat that's losing weight and losing hair. This, to me, sounds like your cat has an overactive thyroid. Try doing a google search or yahoo search on hyperthyroidism and see if the symptoms fit. There's also a possiblility of kidney disease, as well. That could cause weight loss, too, but not hair loss. My main suspicion is hyperthyroid disease. This can be extremely dangerous because the heart rate increases big time. This can cause heart failure.
