Hello,

Weight loss can be due to multiple causes like
Muscle wasting disease/atrophy
Poor nutrition
Chronic infections
Malignancy/cancers
Gastrointestinal disorders

Thyroid dysfunction

A detailed investigations should be done to determine the underlying cause and a clinical correlation by doctor should be considered to get proper treatment.
