Question: I'm 44 and out of nowhere my periods stopped 6 months ago. My hormone levels showed way above menopause levels. I just had a CT can that showed I have a fatty liver even though I eat very healthy and do not drink, smoke and I'm underweight. I've also lost eight pounds in two months which is not good. I also have a cough for two months now that isn't getting better. It only happens when I'm walking or talking. No pain, just a weird feeling in my chest the makes me lose my breath and cough. Is this tied together. I'm normally very active but I now have no energy.

Brief Answer:
Consult physician for thorough examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic. I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns.

Your current complaints are not related to menopause.

Was this weight loss intended?
Since you eat healthy and do not drink, you need to look into other causes of fatty liver like, diabetes and high triglycerides. So please get them checked.
The cough does not seem to be related to fatty liver.
Your weight loss could be related to it. The cough could be due to allergies or air pollutants or due to some other lung disease. It is extremely important that you consult physician for thorough examination and investigations like chest X-ray, complete blood count etc.

I hope this is helpful.
Best wishes,
Dr Rama.

No, I'm not trying to lose weight. I'm thin. I don't have diabetes. My triglycerides are perfect.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Since you do not have any risk factors for fatty liver, it is important that you are thoroughly examined by Physician.
Genetic predisposition is the only reason I can think of.

Hi,

I am of the opinion that the ultrasound report might've been incorrect.
Since you do not have risk factors, I feel MRI report is correct.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
