I have lost almost 11 kg weight over the period of 6 months. For a few months I have difficulty remembering things I study and this is affecting my grades very much. I am so anxious and upset all the time. I have also lost apatite. Should I see a doctor?

You need to do thyroid profile, CBC, KFT, LFT, Lipid profile from a lab. You should not do such a drastic dieting. Our body needs nutrition n some basic nutrients from diet everyday. It’s not like if you r overweight, your body has stored all the e nutrients in extra quantity. It has fat stores only. 1. Don't Overeat 2. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style. This is most important n non negotiable part 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, Carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water. 10. Curd is good for you. 11. Everyday preferably sleep on same time For more details you can consult me.
