Our expert says:
Unexplained weightloss (i.e. when someone is not on an active diet and/or exercise regimen) and loss of appetite are always causes for concern. Please take your wife for a full medical checkup so that the dr can determine why she is losing weight and does not want to eat. There are many conditions that could be causing this: for example, excess thyroid hormone production, infections, ulcers, and other physical factors, and psychological problems such as depression and/or anxiety. Once we have a diagnosis we can see how she can adapt her diet so that she can get back to eating normally.
