Sudden, unintentional weight loss. Help?

Posted , 2 users are following.

So, I am 21 years old and have experienced quite a weight loss in the last week. I got weight by a doctor a week ago and it went down 10kg since last October but then this week all of a sudden it dropped from 75kg to 70kg? I am normally health person the only problem that i have is iron deficiency anemia but the cause is unknown. In all honesty my anemia has been feeling a little bit more sever in the last month or so but i know that all of this is probably nothing serious. Its just hard not to worry especially when you get no reassurance from the doctor or anyone. I don't need or want anyone to tell me that its something serious i just need some reassurance and guidance. Should i go back to my doctor? Should i be even worried?

    Also, I have quite a few random bruises on my legs, it could be just that i just walked into something as my balance is terrible but i can't remember doing it especially in so many places and it looks like at this same time? and i never ever bruised easily before honestly it would take a car to give me a bruise.

      i would definitely go back to a dr to have your iron levels checked you dont want your anemia getting so out of hand that it puts you in the hospital. it sounds like its related to anemia in the meantime eat lots of iron rich foods and take an iron supplement to see jf it helps
