Drastic Weight Loss For 3 Months?
My doctor wants to ask, I have experienced a drastic decrease in the period of 3 months but before I was drastically thin I did not experience chronic diarrhea, dizziness or prolonged fever and had no complaints when suddenly I was thin while in Malaysia and yesterday I returned from Malaysia on June 13 yesterday and during my time in Indonesia my weight has increased by 3 kg, why is it?
Hello, thank you for your question.
Drastic weight loss is actually dangerous for the body. Losing weight can be due to a strict diet or a certain disease. A safe weight when dieting is around 0.5-1 kg per week. If the weight that you lose exceeds the recommended safe limit, of course, there is a risk of electrolyte balance disorders and other health problems such as constipation, menstrual cycle disorders, dehydration, malnutrition, headaches, emotional disorders, gallstones, dizziness and fatigue.
Drastic weight loss apart from a strict diet can also be caused by several diseases such as:
Celiac disease Gastrointestinal infection, infection can be due to viruses, bacteria, or parasites. Tuberculosis. HIV / AIDS infection. Leukemia. Thyroid hormone disorders. Depression. Heart failure. Kidney failure disease. Diabetes mellitus. Of course, to find out the cause of drastic weight loss, requires a doctor's examination directly. The doctor will perform anamnesis (interview) and investigations to make a diagnosis. If necessary, supporting examinations will be carried out such as blood tests, urine analysis, stool analysis, ultrasound, CT scan or other examinations as indicated.
