I'm a 23 year old female and I weigh around 138 lbs if I drink three ensures or  nutriments a day will that help me gain weight  ?

Probably, but why?: For a woman in her twenties, 138 lbs sounds normal (but that depends on her height, and what she has been weighing over the past 12 months). In general, we doctors like to do things the natural way, meaning we prefer weight gain by eating nutritious foods that are part of a balanced diet. Balanced means a good variety of foods. Ensure comes in a can, but if needed, it will increase one's weight. ...Read more

Start with lifestyle: Takes more than 3 months! try changing dietary habits. Reduce calories eaten. Choose healthy foods and watch your calories. Make sure you watch what you're drinking too (soda, alcohol, etc). Exercise several times a week. You need to burn more calories than you consume. There are several "apps" that will track the information for you. Beyond that, you can consult your physician for other options. ...Read more

I am a 27 year old female and i weigh about 119lbs. Is that dangerous? I eat three meals a day, stay health and such. I also have a high metabolism.

I am a 27 year old female and i weigh about 119lbs. Is that dangerous? I eat three meals a day, stay health and such. I also have a high metabolism.

Depends: Whether 119 lbs is a good weight or not depends mostly on how tall you are. If you are 6 ft plus that is far too little weight; if you are 5 ft 2 inches it could be a good weight. See your doctor and discuss your ideal weight and how to get to it and stay at it. ...Read more

Sure, no problem: You could easily gain 5 in a week. Resume your usual training and add some extra water to your daily intake. Remember, muscle weighs more than fat. As you build muscle you might gain weight. But, see how you look and how your clothes fit. What holr is the belt on ? Weight is only one indicator. Don't sweat it. Good luck in the 26.2. ...Read more

Rapid exam: There are many reasons why babies fail to gain weight and your baby need a prompt assessment. The fever is also worrisome and may contribute to the underlying cause. I am unsure of your babies birth history but the safest route is to a children's hospital emergency room. ...Read more
