Brief Answer:
loss of weight

Detailed Answer:
Dear
Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health concern and following points need further clarification for better management and understanding of problem:

1. Is it gross weight loss or is a small weight loss which needs some good diet and exercise?
2. Any routine investigations done for the same, like
. Hb%, WBC,ESR & Urine Routine
.Blood sugar curve?
. H.I.V. Test as routine?
. X-ray chest (if cough,anorexia,fever), Gastrocopy?
. Ultrasonography of abdomen?
. Thyroid profile?
. Any addiction to alcohol or drugs?

PS. Loss of weight may be the presenting feature of some serious disease

- Do let me.kmow about above questionnaire so that symptomwise approach can be started since tonics and injections alone are not going to help to build the body mass. Good food and exercise must accompany the medicines for a substantial gain in weight. (If investigations are or comes out to be normal)
