Loach is wasting away

How can you diagnose whether loach has what is known as "Skinny disease" as opposed to internal parasites? My loaches were doing fine for 4 months until 2 of them started to loose weight pretty badly, especially one. I moved him to the hospital and treated him with Jungle "internal parasite guard" but don't know the result. He does not eat anything but bloodworms, hiding all the time and you can see his internal organs. I am trying to decide whether to order Levamisole hydrochloride (Discomed) or something else please advise.
