It has been discovered that most parent finds it difficult to address or care for their kids when they start losing weight. I can understand why most parents don't pay attention. Most parents don't pay attention because, most times when a child starts losing weight, it's a result of malnutrition (This is also a disease, but I won't add it to my list because I don't consider it a major disease to worry about), and stress. And in most cases, it could be a more serious issue to worry about.

Parents worry no more because, in today's article, I will be sharing with y'all some of the diseases that can make a child lose weight, what you can do to prevent some of them, and why you should be worried when your child starts losing weight.

Muscle Loss

This can lead to an unexpected amount of weight loss because it has been proven that most causes of muscle loss like broken bones, aging, burn, stroke, nerve damage, can make a person lose weight. This is very bad and harmful because it not only makes you lose weight, it can also cause bad posture (due to broken parts of the body), and in worst cases scenarios, it can lead to death. The best way to prevent this as a child and even as an adult is to stay clear from danger.

Mouth Sores Or Dental Problem

When a child has mouth sores or dental problems, this can make them eat or drink less, which in turn can make them lose weight.

Fever

When someone (especially children) is caught with a fever, it can cause loss of appetite, which can cause weight loss. And also, fever burns up extra calories (fat) in the body, which can also cause weight loss. Excluding weight loss, fever is also dangerous because it can also cause sweating, chills, and shivering, headache, muscle pains, dehydration, and other side-effects.

Diabetes

As I said earlier, don't look away when your child starts losing weight because diabetes is also one of them. Although diabetes is not as common in children, this is a disease you should know and be cautious of. Excessive thirst, urination, and weight loss are symptoms of diabetes. So you should also keep this in mind, just in case your child is showing any symptoms.

Tuberculosis

Weight loss and loss of appetite are part of the major symptoms of tuberculosis.

Cancer

One of the main symptoms of cancer is weight loss, so if your child starts losing so much weight, you should be fast to take action (Visit a doctor), who knows your child may have cancer. Other symptoms of cancer include fever, fatigue, pain, and skin changes.

NOTE: For clearer and more information, you are advised to visit a doctor.
