By the way your mom must consume adequate proteinaceius diet as well as external protein supplement. Fat diet is particularly useful for chronic respiratory prblems.

, heart disorders and hypertension

, immunosuppressive conditions, underlying tuberculosis
because these are the causes of weight loss.
