  • Many things can cause weight loss and hair loss. Hyperthyroidism I know can. And certainly cancer can cause the same. Has your MD referred you to any specialist?

  • Hi. I've noticed you haven't been active so i hope you get this but I am very curious if you've gotten an accurate diagnosis since then... I have been going through the same exact thing for the past 3 years and have gotten all the normal test results from doctors. Please let me know if you've figured it out because it may possibly help me too. Thanks
