Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX According to your height and weight, your Body Mass Index is 20 kg/m2. It is in normal rage. Thus your weight is appropriate for your height and age. Though if you are able to increase your weight by a few kilos, your breast size will increase. Fat at stomach can be reduced by exercising. You should exercise for atleast 20 min a day. Exercise can include gym, walk, yoga, swimming etc. The reason why you feel thirsty all the time can be due to the dry cough you have. Nose blockage (when you have cold) can be a sign of presence of allergy. I really think that you need to be evaluated by a doctor. The reason for looking fat when the weight is in lower normal range can be due to edema (retention of fluid). This can be another reason for feeling thirsty. Low thyroid hormones can cause edema and fatigue (feeling sleepy). One very common reason for feeling thirsty is raised blood sugar (diabetes). So the next step is to get a physical examination done by a doctor along with tests. Tests can include urine analysis and blood tests. Blood tests can include complete hemogram, hemoglobin levels, fasting blood sugar levels, thyroid profile (T3, T4, TSH), liver function tests (Sr Bilirubin, SGOT, SGPT), kidney function tests (Sr Creatinine, BUN), Lipid profile, Total protein, albumin, globulin, A/G ratio, etc. An ECG may also be needed. Also try to make some changes in your lifestyle, My suggestions will be as follows: - Take nutritious, hygienic diet and pure drinking water - Exercise daily - Eat fruits and vegetables upto 5 times a day. - Take at least 3 regular meals and 4 small snacks in a day. Hope I answered your query. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Dr Vaishalee
