    You can ask your dr for a blood test to check if you are low on anything (i.e. B12 etc) - and they can tell you if you need to take supplements. - it probably wouldn't hurt to have a check up as you losing weight so fast...

    Hope your appetite picks up.

    I am a dietetics student, pretty much the rule of thumb is not to pick and choose random supplements unless you are indeed deficient. I strongly recommend a daily multivitamin and eat a variety of nutrient dense foods. If you have a decreased appetite, try small frequent meals throughout the day. Whatever you are putting into your body needs to be healthy if you aren't able to adequately consume foods to meet your energy needs. If you are truly concerned, make an appointment with a registered dietitian to discuss this. Doctors do not have nutrition training. Good luck!

    Many newer doctors have detailed nutrition training. I know many that have attended classes so that they understand the value of diet. My son besides by a formal chef has a degree in nutrition and has presented several seminars to doctors

    The B6 vitamin can actually cause nerve damage so just be careful on doses.
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
