does anyone know if diverticulitis would cause unknown weight loss?, my son has symtoms, which are just surfacing to my attention, but he has lost a great deal of weight for no apparent reason. and yes i have an appointment for this teenager, but wondered if anyone could share their knowledge with me,,, obviously worried! thank you in advance!
