If you're not obese and you've lost more than 10 percent of your body weight during the past six months .... for instance, 15 pounds (7 kilograms) if you weigh 150 pounds (68 kilograms)...consult your doctor.
An unexplained drop in weight could be caused by various conditions  including overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), diabetes, depression, liver disease, cancer or disorders that interfere with how your body absorbs nutrients...consult nearest physician they will help you
