Weight Gain

Asked for Female, 21 years

Any nutritionist here? I'm continuously losing weight and in these few days of Ramadan I lost 5 kgs, my height is 5"7 and the weight is 41 right now. I eat a lot but can't gain weight. Please help.

Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. Are you having any diarrhea or constipation? I would recommend that you visit a general physician and get your thyroid levels checked. Feeling hungry and losing weight may be related to the imbalance of the thyroid.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best Nutritionists in Lahore and seek in-person advice.
