What Causes Sudden Weight Loss Despite Following A Healthy Diet?

two unrelated questions I am 75 years old, just received my bloodwork write up all great except low blood platelets 92,000. Why am I losing weight when my eating habits include bread meat donuts etc. The unrelated question I have a 15 year old son, and give him a 1000 iu of vitamin D3 daily. Is that good for him? Thanks Ray Cardinale

Hello,

There can be many reasons for 92K platelet count, but no serious problem. For your son, 400 IU of Vit D3 required daily.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. RS Gulati
