i'm just wondering if people with crohn's disease have higher metabolisms? or burn fat quicker or what because i'm starting to get concerned about my weight loss. i do eat, it doesn't cause me pain or make me want to be sick or anything like that. i know i don't eat really large amounts of food and i used to do light exercise aout 5-6 days a week. Now only exercise about 1-2 times a week. i have increased the amount of food i eat aswell but people seem to tell me i have lost even more weight. it's not a drastic change but they seem to notice it.
i am 5'0 and weigh 41kg at the moment. about a month or 2 ago i weighed 42kg and i have lessened my exercising and been eating fattier things. i don't understand why i lose the weight instead of gaining it?
i have had increased stool frequency but haven't had D for about 6-7 weeks since increasing my medicine. I'm not sure what else to do? Is it possible to lose weight even if i'm not running to the bathroom a lot? I still am in the process of receivign an official crohn's diagnosis but my GI says he is only becoming increasingly convinced that it is crohn's. If i do have it it's only mild so i don't see why i would lose weight? Before starting the medication i did have D at least once a week. It's so frustrating to not knwo what is going on! I do suffer from fructose malabsorption aswell so that interfers with things too!
Also is it normal to become really tired a lot? Even if i have had enough sleep?
