Weight Loss

Everyone has a healthy weight, and sometimes due to situations that are often out of our control this weight can drop off without any real explanation. This can be due to emotional or stressful situations, it can also be down to a medical reason, such as a spell of being under the weather, and not having the inclination to eat regularly.

Sometimes a major change in weight can be a sign of a serious medical issue, with underlying causes. Such examples may be thyroid issuesdiabetesdepression, or an eating disorder.

Weight loss becomes a serious issue when the BMI drops below 18.5.

Signs and symptoms

The signs of weight loss are much more straight forward and more obvious than some other conditions. In that an unexpected and unexplained amount of weight has been lost, without any real changes in normal routine.

It is common that the weight change is a symptom of a more serious complication being present, and can be the warning signs of something not being quite right.

Medical conditions that may be encouraging the weight change may be drug abuse, heavy smoking, infections or infestations, systemic diseases, such as heart failure, chronic respiratory problems, rheumatoid arthritis, medications, or problems with absorption of what is being eaten, among others.

Problems caused by Weight Loss

The most serious complication that can be caused by severe weight loss is that the body will need to burn muscle in order to keep working in the correct manner. This can lead to kidney and liver failure, and even heart attacks or strokes.

Nutrients will also be taken from bones, such as calcium which will leave bones weak and more susceptible to breaks, and in the longer term osteoporosis. Gallstones is also a complication although this isn’t as common as the aforementioned issues.

Dehydration may happen due to some supplements that are being taken to aid weight loss such as phentermine.

Treatments to aid Weight Loss

Many people find that if they suffer from diabetes or have a thyroid complaint that as soon as it is rebalanced the weight change is reversed and previous normal weight is reached. However it is almost always necessary to keep up with a healthy diet and exercise routine to ensure this weight is sustained, and extreme changes don’t happen again.

There are many supplements that may be of use to those hoping to lose weight but they should only be used under strict diet and exercise routines due to these being the most helpful in aiding weight loss.

Conclusion

Should weight loss be what you want to achieve then it is best to do so using a good diet and exercise plan, to ensure that all the necessary nutrients are being obtained to avoid any of the issues above, involving liver, kidneys, heart or bones.

It is important that any unexpected weight loss be looked into as it may be a sign of a more serious underlying medical issue, such as diabetes or thyroid complications.

There are of course cosmetic effects of losing weight too quickly, such as excess skin, and losing the elasticity especially in the face in those over a certain age, and hair loss again due to not enough nutrients.
