Dear underweight,: Unless you are extremely petite, 44 kg or 97 pounds is a low weight for an adult. Sorry, without knowing your height, can't say much more about that. If you have been unable to increase your weight on your own, please consider working with a nutritionist who can guide you. Take care.
