There are reasons for unable to gaining weight medical reasons like-
• Chronic Anemia
• Intestinal Worms
• Tuberculosis or TB
• Cancer and AIDS
Firstly, let’s talk about the medical reasons for not being able to gain weight.
There are some common diseases that do not disable a person but do not let them live a normal and healthy life either.
Chronic Anemia is a lack of red blood cells.
• Intestinal Worms
Intestinal Worms which is common in many parts of India, due to non-availability of clean drinking water. It may also happen if one does not wash their hands properly before eating and also due to not washing fruits and vegetables properly before consuming them This results in many people getting infected susceptible those children who get infected with intestinal worms to appear quite thin and malnourished, but their stomach looks bloated.
• Tuberculosis or TB
It is also widespread in India, And those people who get infected with this disease are unable to gain weight plus they also feel quite tired. They may also occasionally suffer from fever at night.
Increase of thyroid hormone production
Another reason is that many times people have a problem digesting food properly and because of improper digestion, their stomach gets upset frequently and thus unable to gain weight Increase of thyroid hormone production in the body.
Diabetes at a young age also prevents people from gaining weight.
•Cancer and AIDS
Cancer and diseases like AIDS also prevent one from gaining weight.
So before you change your diet plan and try to gain weight, you should first go to the hospital and get a blood test done in which test is done for Anemia, Diabetes & Tuberculosis And as far as intestinal worms or some other stomach infection goes and also to rule out any digestive disorders you should have a stool test done, which will effectively rule out all these problems.
