Weight gain
Jun 20, 2004

Hello, I am 25 years old and my height is 5.5. But by weight is 125 pounds. I am surely under weight. As far as my eating habits are concerned. I do eat lot of nutritious food. I do smoke alot. All members of my family donot have any wt. problem at all. Its just me. I donot have any infections which may hamper my weight gain. I have no idea why I cannot gain weight, One more thing I have observed is that I lose weight faster that I gain. I need to knwo what medication should I go for if any. Thanks in advance

Response from Mr. Vergel

Stop smoking and you will gain weight for sure. Smoking is an appetite suppressant and it induces metabolic problems that may impede weight gain. Ask your doctor about Ziaban and patches.
