Patient : I am 58 and have lost 20lbs. in 6 months or less. I am an archaeologist and did some intense excavating last summer , often through clay. I feel great but despite eating more, have not been able to regain the weight. My breasts are smaller and my derriere is also which I know is likely due to my age. But I feel great and healthy. Should I have my thyroid checked?
