Diabetes mellitus - characterized by weight loss for no apparent reason, frequent hunger, frequent drinking, frequent BAK, a wound that has been healing for a long time, blurred vision
Disturbances in the digestive tract, such as stomach ulcers (stomach wall injury), GERD / increase in stomach acid so that the intake of nutrients is very little
Thyroid gland disorders
Decrease in body power resulting in infections such as tuberculosis or HIV / AIDS
Malignancy / cancer
Meanwhile, pain in the legs so that it is difficult to walk can occur due to: inflammation of the joints (for example: gout arthritis / gout, osteoarthritis), after trauma, injuries to the legs, spinal cord disorders.
To ensure the diagnosis of your father's disease, you need to do a direct examination because there are many possible causes of complaints such as your father.
