Dr. Elena Tikhomirova, a Russian nutrition expert, said sudden weight loss is a serious symptom that points to cancer, tuberculosis or diabetes.

In an interview with the Izvestia newspaper, the doctor pointed out that a sharp weight loss indicates an increased metabolic activity in the body, which requires a large amount of energy.

“Sudden, unexplained, uncontrolled weight loss may be associated with cancer, tuberculosis, type 1 diabetes, thyrotoxicosis, or other diseases,” she says.

The expert recommends that in such cases it is imperative to consult a doctor, and not try to identify the causes and self-medicate.
