Thank you for your question on

Lack of appetite and nausea associated with loss of weight can mean some gastrointestinal problem. Please notice, if you are also passing any blood or mucus in stools. A thorough examination of gastrointestinal system including stool examination for microscopy, culture and sensitivity to rule out any infection/infestation is mandatory.

Anemia can also cause loss of appetite, breathlessness and make you to lose weight if it is associated with other deficiencies. So, routine blood investigations are needed. Chronic infections also need to be ruled out. Please consult your doctor for a routine examination and blood investigations. Thank you.
