Unintentional weight loss that is weight loss that occurs without dieting or exercise is commonly seen with type 1 diabetes but is sometimes seen with type 2 diabetes also. In diabetic people, insulin production is not sufficient. This results in poor or no metabolism of glucose, that is found in the blood. This glucose is broken down and used as a fuel for the body. Because there is a lack of insulin to breakdown this glucose, the body starts using stored fat and muscles for energy, which leads to weight loss. If you have lost more than 4.5 kg unintentionally in less than a year, it is most likely due to an underlying health condition.
