Brief Answer:
Possible effects of the weight loss program you've followed till today

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concern.

When entering a weight loss program, its effects become notable depending on the restrictions included and might last longer after achieving your goal.

So, to my opinion, if you followed a very restricted diet, it might have caused to lose weight very quickly and still keeping lose weight.

However, if I was your caring doctor would advise to run further investigations in order to exclude other serious causes.

Let me know if you have further questions.
