Unintentional weight loss needs to be evaluated -What was your initial weight to start with? -How much percent of weight is lost compared to your initial weight is important ( >10% is significant) - what other symptoms do you have? - How was the month in relation to mental health( stress/ anxiety/ any important incident etc) - History of thyroid disease/ medications? - Any other medical conditions or regular medications?
