Losing the weight from body becomes inevitable when it crosses the limit. Usually an overweight person is compelled to face several obstacles in their daily life, what I have discussed in different articles of this website. So, I don’t want to repeat the previous discussion in this section. Normally weight loss process can be divided into two classes. These are likely-
- Unintentional weight loss
- Intentional weight loss
For your better understanding, I am going to write down briefly about these two process of losing weight.
1. Unintentional weight loss
There are quite a number of examples available of unintentional weight loss process. It can be happened for different reasons. Loss of body fat, fluids and muscle atrophy can pave the way to lose weight in return. Besides these reason, it also can occur for the reason of diseases, malnutrition, hormonal change, disrupted metabolism, improper medication and so forth.
This type of weight loss sometimes can be proved as very dangerous for human body, as it is unexpected and uncontrolled, which can lead the way to sickness and weakness. So, if someone observes that he/she losing weight very fast and unintentionally, then it is essential to go through some medical check up to confirm about all the body organs working consistently. Proper findings and treatment can help individuals to decide on the ways to follow for regaining the lost weight.
Losing weight unintentionally can affect several processes in human body. Such as

Besides, unintentional weight loss can lead the way to deficiency in Vitamin, minerals and iron. These are very essential elements in human body for properly functioning on regular basis.

A diet plan can be better option if you are facing nutritional deficiency. Sometimes doctor suggest taking some medication for hormonal disorder. Some people cure weight lose from general illness like influenza cold, food poisoning by taking bed rest for few days.
Weight lose also is a sign of some serious diseases like cancer. If you are not getting any general, causes of weight lose then you must go to doctor to determine the right causes of weight lose. If you’re doctor suspects then you, have to go some specific test. Around 40% patient of cancer alleges some quick weight loss at the beginning and above 80% patient loses weight seriously at advance level of cancer. So unintentional weight loss may be a serious issue if right steps are not taken at right time.
