Loosing weight - unintentionally

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello. I have had a big struggle for 2/3 months in particular. I'm on 150mg sertraline. Basically, the last few weeks I attempted 3 times and have been hospitalised for them and also for bad thoughts. Whilst all of this has been going on, my appetite has decreased, sleep is bad, I can't enjoy anything. My second hospital admission I checked my weight and compared it to my third hospital admission and I had lost 3kg in 3 days (I got hospitalised again 3 days later). I hear that loosing that amount is quite bad, it is unintentional but also intentional because I don't want to eat. I've also been hearing voices but not bad ones, some are bad but they're not if that makes sense. I'm currently 17 and my parents want me sectioned but "nowhere has any beds".

Should I tell my doctor about this?

    How is your diet, Why were you admitted to hospital and did they check your weight loss ??

      Hi bob. My diet is okay, I (at the hospital) have croissant for breakfast, pasta or chicken for lunch (nothing in between breakfast and lunch), and maybe potato or another healthy dish usually for dinner. Although from lunch to dinner I tend to comfort eat (snacks) I still do kind of, I've just lost my appetite a lot. I was admitted for attempt (the first admission and third admission). No, they didn't check it. I just compared them on my discharge letter.

    Most of the weight loss diet plans provided online or by certain nutritionists look at curing the symptom and not treating the root cause of weight issues. Hence it is highly advised that you consult a trained professional on how to lose weight.
