Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

5 kg decrease in 4 months is not a huge reduction in weight to worry .Does she have any other symptoms like decrease in appetite , diarrhea , constipation ? Anyways its better to get checked with your Doctor .He may ask you to get a peripheral smear.

Take care.

Hi Dear
I think your doctor is using older class of medication. We have newer medicines which bring prompt relief to the patient and have lesser side effects and are recommended by all the authorities in the world.
Was she given any medicine for the heart problem??
You can always contact me at my email
Good Luck!!!!!!!
