Brief Answer:
Thyroid function test is needed...

Detailed Answer:

Your high metabolism is most likely to be caused by hormonal imbalances. I advise to run some blood tests:
- complete blood work
- thyroid function tests
- diabetes test

in order to determine the right cause and get it treated correctly by the endocrinologist.

All the best!
