sudden weight loss
What possible explanations could there be for my losing approx. 7kg in 3 months without even trying (no exercising, dieting, etc.) ? I don't feel sick or anything, though I'm almost always thirsty.

MA, it sounds like you might have diabetes, but weight loss can be a sign of almost any serious disease. The best would be to see our GP a.s.a.p. and have it sorted out. Good luck.
