I'm losing weight very quickly.

I've always had issues with my weight. I'm currently 190 pounds. I have recently found out i am lactose intolerant. Due to this i've been finding i have no motivation to eat. Every time i do, i feel very sick and weak. In under a week I have lost over half a stone. I also don't do a lot of exercise. I'm wondering what this means?

The best thing to do would be to go to your doctor about this. I know that seems like an obvious suggestion and you probably came to this site as an alternative to having to seek professional attention, but if you're suffering those kinds of symptoms daily, you need to get help right away. Getting an appointment and going straight to your doctor will be faster and more effective than waiting for an answer here.
Hope this helps, and that you get well very soon.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You are on right track. Continue your good work.
If you are suspicious then go for thyroid function tests to rule out hyperthyroidism.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
