Can fungal infection on the toe cause excessive weight loss and sweating?

My 16 yr old daughter has lost 15-20 lbs since november. She has darkness around eyes..and sweats alot. But its not constant. Could this be caused by her severe fungal infection on her big toe?

Fungal infection does not cause excessive weight loss. It could be due to something else. Make sure that her oral intake is adequate or not.
Consult a physician if weight loss persists even after good food intake.

Hello, My question is for my spouse. He is 69 years old and for the past several months he has episodes when he cant get to the bathroom quick enough and has uncontrollable bowel movements. He is a diabetic and a cigarette smoker. Also for the past few weeks in is losing weight without dieting. He works a part time job as a security officer but he stays tired all the time, has no appetite, and has been on antibiotics and Prednisone for sinus infection and pleurisy. He is over the sinus infection and pleurisy but continues to lose weight and blood sugars are still high. Does he need to see his family doctor for these symptoms or what could be causing these symptoms. Thank you.
