Rapid Unintentional Weight Loss

I am a 28 Year old male. I have lost 15kg’ s in 8 weeks and counting… 
I don’ t have an eating disorder  I have 2-3 full meals per day. Exercise mildly, don’ t have any medical problems, not allot of stress, I feel very healthy otherwise.
I always never had any problems maintaining my weight until now without any lifestyle changes.
Please advice

Hallo Francois
Any sudden weight loss, especially if it is not due to dieting, is very concerning and could be a sign of serious disease like overactive thyroid, cancer, HIV, malabsorbtion syndromes,or severe acute depression. Please see your doctor for a few basic screening blood tests.
