To a point this can be true, but be very cautious about believing this to mean that if you feel fine, you are fine. There are many extremely serious health conditions that are entirely symptom-free until they've done irreversible, even deadly damage - such as serious nthyroid problems, diabeties, and many cancers.

And the fact is, there is a symptom - unexplained weight loss.

We're so weight-obsessed in this country, that it is tempting to delay treatment to enjoy the benefits of effortless weight loss - but you can't afford to wait. You don't want to literally be "dying to lose weight."
