Are you on any medications? Some meds. can cause loss of appetite.
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, or AAFP, teenagers or adolescents who are depressed may experience a loss in appetite. Other signs your teen may be experiencing depression include loss of interest in favorite activities, a change in sleep patterns and not wanting to attend school. Depression is often caused by traumatic events such as divorce or a death in the family. Depression causes an imbalance in certain chemicals in the brain such as serotonin, which affects both mood and appetite.
Depression, stress can cause a variety of negative effects on the body, including decrease or loss of appetite. Teens who experience difficulty at school, such as bullying or a learning disability, may experience serious loss of appetite due to emotional and psychological stress.
No, no medications. Also, it's not depression. I don't feel depressed, I attend school as normal, my grades are fine. I have nothing to be sepressed about. Im 100% sure it's NOT depression.
You sound like me around your age. I had problem gaining weight since my body would burn it faster than it would store it. I went to see a doctor whom advised me to start snaking between meals. He advise fat and sweet things like yogurt, nuts and fruits to stimulate my appetite.
Try also to drink more water even if not thirsty again to stimulate tour appetite. Are you active or do tou easily get tired ? I personally lost energy around my period due to a decrease of iron in my blood. Ask your doctor for some supplements to take until you can balance your diet.
I hope this will help you.
If your blood tests are fine, you don't feel nauseous, sick or dizzy, and you are developing normally, I don't see the reason why you would eat more and force yourself to eat (unless you're eating below 1000 calories a day). And no, it's not anorexia. Anorexia is a mental disease. Try counting calories and keeping the intake above 1200 calories, that's perfectly enough. If struggling, try taking vitamin b complex- it makes you hungry. I hope it helped. :)
I have the same EXACT problem, but its just I'm going through a lot with my family and now ex boyfriend and i have found a lost appetite even in my favorite foods. I don't gain weight easily anymore because i work out a lot. The only thing I can tell you is to not stress about it because then it will get worse just keep on doing what your doin g because your not anorexics at all. Just be strong.
