As you said under weight. What is our weight?

To increase the weight you need to focus on diet like vegitable and rich fiber diet.

Have you lost weight.

If you have drastically lost weight, you need to get yourself evaluated. There may be a underlying problem, if you are not putting on weight.

Weight, body structure is usually genetically determined.

I was diagnosed with C. difficile in June, referred to an infectious disease specialist, and was involved with a blind drug test. My symptoms returned October, November , while I tested positive for C. difficile again, the infectious disease people say it is a false positive. I lost 20 pounds with the first diagnosis, have lost a further 10. I have swelling in my abdominal section, and also on the right side of my stomach. My doctor refuses to do anything without ruling out C. difficile

I am having acute right upper quadrant pain. It woke me up about an hour and a half ago. I am trying to decide if I need to go to the ER or not. I had gastric banding in July of this year but have never had any problems. Feel just slightly queasy.

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.
