Welcome to ehealthforum,
Weight loss could be due to various causes. Most common causes being poor nutrition, and underlying health issues. Others include gastrointestinal problems/illnesses, depression, dysphagia, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, ulcerative colitis, cancer etc. Consider getting complete work-up done under your doctor to look for the root cause for your weight loss. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you. Maintain healthy diet with high protein content will help to put on weight.
Take care.
