Unexplained Weight Loss in Children
Stress and depression can cause weight loss in children.
Call your doctor for an appointment in the next few days to talk about what's going on with your child. Your doctor may still want to do some tests to be sure the weight loss isn't due to illness or another physical problem. Making an appointment with a mental health provider is also a good idea.
