Because of her extremely skinny, frail-looking frame, many people on social media speculated that Keisha may have passed away from anorexia.
True, the 25-year-old daughter of Nash and Forest Whitaker, has been sharing on Instagram posts about her beloved mother. She also addressed the anorexia rumor.
In a follow-up post, True shut down a rumor related to Nash’s death, which she described as being “not relevant to my mother.”
“Going to say this one thing and then ask for space while my family heals,” the actress wrote on her Instagram Story Friday. “There have been statements from STRANGERS claiming the cause of my mom’s death.”
“My mom DID NOT suffer from anorexia, although my heart goes out to those who do,” she added.
Causes for a Person Being Underweight
A person may become underweight for many different reasons. He/she may be born naturally small and but low BMI can be due to geneology. You may have a very high metabolism and find it hard to put on weight, even if you eat foods that have a lot of calories.
Someone may not follow a healthy, balanced diet because he or she may forget to eat or cannot afford nutritious foods. They might find it hard to eat properly because they are sick, or the medicines make them feel nauseous. If a person does a lot of physical activity it may burn up more calories than they can eat, leading to them to be underweight.
Some physical conditions can cause weight loss, leading to underweight. These include:
- stomach problems, such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea
- an infection
- cancer, HIV or lung disease
- thyroid problems
- Crohn’s disease
Mental health problems can also cause someone to be underweight. These include:
- anxiety and stress
- eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia nervosa
