I think you need a second opinion. Hormones aren't going to cause rapid weight loss.

You are severely underweight I believe. You need a second opinion. You shouldn’t be under 100lbs depending on how tall you are. Being under weight can cause a lot of health issues and can mess with hormones.

You were 71lbs on the 6th, then lost another 4lbs making you 67lbs? 67lbs (which is 30kg) is DANGEROUSLY underweight. I'm a couple of inches shorter than you and at 43kg I am underweight. I do not believe that a doctor would look at you and shrug it off as just hormones. Either you're lying about your weight or your doctor is an idiot.

Yeah that's severely underweight unless you're like, 8 years old.

5'1" you should be at 100lbs or over, like about 120ish I think is average for your height. Either way anything less than 100 is very underweight and is very dangerous to your health especially when you're still going through puberty.

I would definitely see a different doctor, that's not hormones, and even still it's dangerous and you need your hormones corrected in that case.
