About Weight loss

Back to the top

Weight loss occurs when your body burns more calories than it takes in. This can result from changes in your diet, exercise regimen, or lifestyle. In many cases, weight loss brought on by these factors is healthy and normal. Unexplained weight loss, however, is the loss of 10 or more pounds or 5 percent of your body fat, over a 6 to 12 month period without a clear cause. Commonly associated causes of unexplained weight loss include:

  • Gland-related issues such as overactive or underactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism), Addison’s disease, hypercalcemia, and diabetes.
  • Chronic conditions such as Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, and HIV/AIDS.
  • Gastrointestinal issues such as ulcerative colitis or peptic ulcers.
  • Heart-related diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart failure.
  • Undiagnosed eating disorders.
  • Substance abuse including alcohol and drugs.
  • Side effects of medication.
  • Dental problems.
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Cancer.
  • Infection.
  • Pancreatic swelling.
  • Dementia.
  • Anxiety or depression.

Unexplained weight loss is most common in people 65 years or older, and may be a sign of mild to serious underlying health issues. If you are experiencing sudden or unexplained weight loss, speak with your physician or doctor at your next appointment.
