Q.

diabetes

After my brother almost died in an accident I lost 7 kilo' s in 2 weeks. Although I eat as usual I am still loosing weight. My hair is falling out and my skin is itchy. Could this be a sign of diabetes? Maybe caused by shock?

Severe weight loss must be investigated, but stress can cause weight loss and hair loss. I would recommend that you go and see you doctor as it may be diabetes or another underlying condition as well.
