    My son is 25 and usually in good health. For the past two months, he has developed craving for sugar (sweets) and also has a severe loss of appetite and energy. He has lost a lot of weight as well. What could this be?

    Hello! Extreme weight loss and craving sweet things sounds....does he go to the bathroom alot? If he has been shedding pounds and eating a lot of sweet things maybe you should get him checked for diabetes.  There isn't anything wrong with preventive measures, plus it's better to know than not to know.  Click here, it will take you to a few symptoms of diabetes.  I wouldn't jump to any conclusion's but I would see if he would visit his Doctor and let the Doc run test.
