What can I be prescribed to make me gain weight because I been 100 pounds half of my life and im now 26 years old. I've been drinking ensure and boost?

A matter of balance.: To gain a single pound, you must eat 3500 calories more than you use. This would translate to an increase in calories of 500/day to gain one pound in a week! Continue to be sure that your extra calories are nutritious, not junk. Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, almond butter on whole grain toast, smoothies are other good examples. You probably don't get much sympathy, but it can be hard to gain! ...Read more

My son is 13 and has gained 20 kgs in 1 year. He has hypothyroid how to boost his height and get his weight undercontrol?

See endocrinologist: I'm assuming he already sees an endocrinologist and is on medications for the hypothyroid. He should be able to address all these issues. They are the experts in this field. Typically treating the hypothyroid coupled with a health diet and exercise promotes the weight loss. Height is a different issue. Really depends on genetics, but studies can be done to evaluate if it is a problem a well. ...Read more
