answers about my mom
Mar 15, 2006
my question is ,last year or so my mom has lost "alot of weight" went from 220 to now 140 she just stays in bed most if not all day depressed of course,should i take matter in to my own hands and start moving her in with me,or am i just over reacting,my dad died 2 yrs ago and he wasted away as well?
Response from Dr. Young
I'd think that the most important issue is to understand the emotional or medical reasons why your mother has lost 80 pounds-- this usually points to a serious condition. If she were my family member, I'd discuss the mater of weight loss with her doctors.
Good luck, BY
