Help with weight loss in later life.

Unexplained weight loss in older people is a cause for concern. Weight loss can be caused by serious conditions. Though weight loss isn’t always a signal of a medical problem, it should always be investigated.

Weight loss can be a sign of depression, dementia, gastrointestinal issues, thyroid gland disease or cancer. As a general rule, if you have unexplained weight loss, you should see a doctor to get it checked out .

Rapid weight loss can make you experience other symptoms, such as tiredness, loss of appetite and a change in your toilet habits which can result in a reduction of social activities. You may also start to feel anxious about explaining your weight loss to your loved ones.

If you think you have unexplained weight loss, contact our consultant who will complete an assessment to diagnose the underlying issue that is causing the weight loss.
