I am just concerned with how much weight i've lost in less

Customer Question

I am just concerned with how much weight i've lost in less than 6 months without trying to even lose it
JA: What are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: I didn't even try to lose this weight. I've always just had fatigue way before this, but i was at 117 lbs in september and i lost alot because id always feel sick and get nauseous everytime i even smelled food. I would try at least and eat but then i'd feel very nauseous. I've gotten a better appetite recently, but I can't get past 105 lbs and it's alarming because i was 95 lbs in like 7th grade and im a junior
JA: Have you seen a doctor about the nausea?
Customer: No, I'd ask my mom to take me but something would always come up whether it was driving my sisters to work or her working until urgent care after hours, same with my dad. I would've gone months ago but i wasnt sure since i'm a minor that they'd see me without an adult
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I had one kidney taken out at 5 months old due to multi-cystic dysplastic kidney disease (MCDK), no allergies to any medications (only seasonal allergies)

For a couple of weeks a little bit ago, i couldn't even smell food without getting nauseous and the urge to throw up, i still forced myself to eat a bit so i wouldn't feel as sick, but everytime i'd eat i had to stop
