Hello from JA




I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and I can help you with this and any follow up questions. I cover a lot of ground and might give you an answer or ask for information, but use reply to communicate with me for questions or added details.


It is clear from your question that you are stating that you have lost weight in these areas without trying and you would like to know the cause.


You need your thyroid checked, to rule out hyperthyrodism. There are other reasons that you can unintentionally lose weight.


Any chronic illness.


Hidden malignancy.


Absorption problems.


Other metabolic problems.


Adrenal insufficiency for example.


So This requires a work up from an internal medicine doctor. There are a number of possibilities.
