I'm 24. And i look too young for my age:-( . I weigh just 45 and my BMI is very low. Can anyone tell me how can I put on some weight.
If healthy, protein: If you are feeling well, and ideally have been evaluated by a physician recently to be sure you do not have a metabolic condition (such as thyroid disease or diabetes) and are not taking stimulant medications, then adding a protein supplement to your regular diet--without reducing your usual intake--can help. This can be as a snack bar, meal-replacement bar, or powder you add to drinks. ...Read more

If so, that's abnormal; if not, probably OK. I'd treat LDL. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

LDL, not Cholesterol: Cholesterol is a fat molecule manufactured by every animal cell, a building block of each cell membrane (enables membrane fluidity/movement without tearing), is fundamental to the survival of every animal cell.

Cholesterol ?$, but misleading. ...Read more
