What is the danger of fast weight loss



Agency “Prime” interviewed an associate professor of the department of polyclinic therapy of the medical faculty of the Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Education of the Russian National Research Medical University named after N.I. Pirogov Ekaterina Kudina, in which she reported on the danger of rapid weight loss.

So, if a person is dramatically losing weight, while there has been no change in diet or an increase in sports, he should urgently consult a doctor, as this may be a symptom of the disease.

Even if a person dreamed of losing weight, having excess body weight, its inadvertent decrease should not cause unjustified optimism ”, – the doctor warned.

Diseases in which a person suddenly loses weight include endocrine pathology, increased thyroid function, diabetes mellitus, infectious diseases, including tuberculosis. Also, a person can lose weight due to autoimmune disease and cancer.

It is worth noting that weight loss does not necessarily indicate the presence of a disease, but a specialist should find out if this is so after a full examination.

News stories cannot be equated with a doctor’s prescription. Before making a decision, consult a specialist.
