It is not good for children to lose weight rapidly, even if they are overweight. They are still growing and need nutrients. Is she able to drink fluids? Recommend she drink milk shakes to stop the weight loss. Have the Doctor do a scope of her esophagus or check the tonsils area if he has not already.
