Can Endometrial Hyperplasia Cause Weight Loss?
Thanks for writing to us.
Endometrial hyperplasia cannot cause weight loss. In fact, endometrial hyperplasia has obesity as one of its causes. It occurs when there is excess activity of estrogen in the body either from within as seen in perimenopausal and menopausal stages, in polycystic ovarian disease, infertility and obesity; or excess use of estrogen-like medications or estrogen supplements after hysterectomy.
As the endometrium is thickened, there is more of shedding at the time of menstruation and this leads to heavy periods. This could lead to anemia but weight loss is not seen as a direct consequence of such a situation; it may be secondary to the general condition.
You should consult a specialist to understand the cause of your endometrial hyperplasia and get treated. You should also improve your general condition by taking healthy diet and nutritional supplements.

Unexplained weight loss has many reasons-to mention a few-hormonal disorders, autoimmune diseases, tuberculosis, HIV infection, cancers and depression.
At present, you have a BMI (body mass index) of 20.36 and this is very much in the normal range of 19-25. A loss of a significant amount of weight like you had should be investigated. It could simply be heavy work load and insufficient diet, but, chances are better not taken. Please see a physician and get examined.
