Sometimes weight loss can be caused by cancer. It’s important to get it checked if you’re losing weight without trying. Tuberculosis and other chronic illness like diabetes, chronic pancreatitis and malabsorption disorders affecting the small intestines may be the cause of unintentional weight loss
