ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My mom has been slowly losing weight over the past 5 years-30 lbs in all from her 145lb frame. She was told that she had prediabetes for a year. Now her A1C is normal. She’s had a history of endometrial cancer, colon cancer, thyroid removal. She has been tested for crohns, celiacs, malabsorption, scanned for cancer. Her recent bloodwork is all normal. She has been eating enough calories to sustain her weight. There will be times when her weight is stable and then she will uncontrollably lose 3-5 lbs in a couple of weeks . An otherwise healthy woman becoming so thin you can see her bones.
