Default Hamster weight loss??

I have noticed a significant decrease of weight in my hamster, Prim. She has been exercising on her wheel and seems to be eating normally. She's only 9 months old so I doubt she is starting to lose weight due to old age. She gained a few grams before but has been losing weight for the past few months, is this normal? I'm starting to get worried

Hello,

That is a quite a loss, a little vet trip may be a good idea as 9 months is majorly old age yet.

What kind of hamster is she?
