Of course, my docs know everything about me, except for the abrupt weight loss! I'm one of those weird non-progressors. They've run every test imaginable! I just don't want to tell them about this if it falls within the "normal" ranges for weight loss, because I'm being used in studies as an "example" for further grants. Do you understand? I just want to know if weight loss like this is normal or not. If it is not, of course, I will mention it to the researchers! - Paul (Losing Weight Quickly)

Don't think it is normal. You should tell them! Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
