Our expert says:
I hope the dr also did tests for other conditions that can cause weight loss such as cancer, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, etc. If not, please go back to the dr and ask him about other potential conditions that can cause such massive weight loss without using a slimming diet. Another condition that often causes weight loss if untreated is depression. If your daughter is suffering from underlying depression then she needs treatment and also to consult a clinical psychologist. Clinical psychologists are listed in the Yellow Pages under 'Psychologists' or you can ask your gp to refer you.
