Increase Weight Due To Worm Disease?
My doctor is 17 years old and I have worm disease and my weight is 45 kg. It is natural that I’m not tall, 170, how do I gain more weight?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
If your current height is 170 cm and your weight is 45 kg, your body mass index is 15.6. A body mass index below 18.5 is included in underweight. Underweight can be caused by many possibilities, not always caused by intestinal worms. If indeed you have been diagnosed with intestinal worms, of course the doctor has given treatment for you and when the worms have improved, then your weight will go back up well. If not, you need to find out more about the cause of your underweight. Here are some possibilities:
Genetic (meaning that your family does everything tends to be thin)
Quantity or quality of food is lacking
Excessive physical activity
Certain diseases such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, gastrointestinal disorders, cancer, etc.
Certain mental disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia, depression, anxiety disorders, etc.
Here are some things you can try to do to gain weight:
Increase the amount of your meal and also improve the quality of the food you eat (try to eat with balanced nutrition that contains carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins and essential minerals in a balanced amount)
Perform physical activity in sufficient intensity, do sports that can help increase muscle mass such as weight lifting. Make sure your food intake is adjusted to the calories you spend from exercise. If you exercise more often, then the amount / quality of your food must also be better.
Get enough sleep every day (7-9 hours a day)
Drink enough every day (minimum of 2-3 liters a day)
Drink high protein milk
