What causes drastic weight loss despite a normal blood report?

my 40 yr old son has lost a lot of weight this past year without trying. He went through AA as of 4/4/16. He perspires more than any man I have ever been around. He tends to run extremely warm. He drinks a lot of water but seems to be prone to kidney stones. He has undergone blood tests etc but the Dr has not found anything out of the ordinary in the results. Do you have any suggestions to avenues we can pursue? He is stick thin and cannot afford to loose anymore weight. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello dear. Welcome to HCM. I read your query and understand your concern. I would suggest e thyroid gland check, TSH, T3, T4, and a thyroid ultrasound. Hyperthiroidism gives weight loss. Take care
Hope my answer was helpful, if yes vote helpful.

I have had drastic weight loss 60 pounds in the last seven months. BM of at least 25 + daily. I am a 35 year old female. 120-130 depending on the week. I have had colonoscopies, gastroscopies, catscans, stool samples, a series of medications, blood work monthly and everything had been normal until today. Today I was informed that my ASCA test came back at a 27 which is a flag that possibly I have crohns disease which previously had been ruled out. I now have to go for xrays and then swallow a video camera for futher testing. I have informed if these don t match the crohns findings their really is nothing left for my gastro to do and that I will need to seek treatment at cleveland clinic. I really don t understand what another facility would be able to do what already has been tried. Any imput is greatly appreciated. I have two young children and a husband that travels and recently I lost my job because of this condition.
