Dear XXXXXXX
Your reports are within normal limits. Im not sure what you want. Is it that you want some tablets to increase your body weight.? If thats so Im afraid there s none that is approved. When someone presents with weight loss we look for some reversible hormonal causes and also do tests to find out what could be responsible. This would apply if you have lost weight in recent past. If you have been lean from beginning then your body makeup is like that. You need to increase your food intake and also build your muscles to increase your weight. See a nuteitionist and plan a high calorie diet. If nothong is helping and you continue to lose weight then firther evaluation would be warranted.
Hope this helps
