I am the type to look at a chip and gain 5lbs. I am overweight . Eating normally lost 4lbs in two weeks eating plenty. Never happened ever.
Should I be concerned ?
I recently had mirena removed wonder if it could be linked to this.
Also had full bloods done a little low on Vitamin D, B12, calcium and iron . Not enough to be prescribed but enough to take supplements .

Unexplained weight loss needs checking out by a GP as it can be a cancer symptom. Go for an appointment just to give yourself peace of mind flowers

Yes. Go to gp definitely. un intentional weight Loss can be from cancer but also from many other things too. Don't stress too much but checking things out wouldn't hurt.
