Brief Answer:
Have to rule out malabsorption syndromes.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Malabsorption syndromes and parasites should be ruled out initially. For that you can go for a stool routine examination. Deworming should be done by albendazole yearly once.
Body building exercises will be helpful. You can do this with the help of a gym instructor. As you are a vegetarian you can take milk and milk products. This is good for weight gaining. You can also take soy, potatoes, avocado etc.

Do you have any semi diarrhea (loose stools) after consuming wheat or gluten containing products. ?.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.

Hello Doctor, I am vikas from india. Doing private job in Delhi I am suffering -allergic bronchitis and runny nose which last with swelling in nostrils problem for last 6 years. I had asthmatic type attacks in the year 2006. I reached to Dr. R.K. Modi, an Allergologist in my hometown in Patna, India in 2007. Who did allergy test and treated for 4 years. I am giving details of medication which he used during treatment apart weekly ante- allergic vaccination . But since then there is no asthmatic type attacks happened till date. During his treatment my disease was not cured totally. So I have been regularly taking montelukast sodium 10mg & Fermonide ( formoterol 6 mcg, budesonide 200 mcg) & Nesaflo ( fluticasone propionate nasal spray) for last 6 years. Sometimes; when there is season change and occurs runny nose and swelling in nostrils he administered to take prednisolone in tab. Ivepred / (Intra Venus- Dexona injection), Tab. Roxid M, Powder Pulmocare or oxyspray nasal spray to control over the situation. One more thing to say- some nasal polyp form in my nostril. Now; I am out of the reach of my doctor. Consultation discontinued for more than one and a half years; I am using the same. Please suggest the best way. Thanks again.
