I’m 16. I used to be 80, but I have a high metabolism I don’t know why i keep losing weight instead of gaining it.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I prefer we text instead of calling.

you need to see a doctor and get more testing

40 lb weight loss is too much

you need your thyroid hormone levels to be checked

you need your diet and eating habits to be reviewed.
