Ask Health Experts and Get Answers to Your Health Question ASAP
Hello. Thank you for your question. I would be happy to help you any way that I can. Besides dietary food choices and certain disease processes, inability to gain weight can be caused by poor absorption of nutrients. If you would be happy to answer a few questions, I could perhaps offer some advice that way be helpfully for you. Are you having any health symptoms besides the inability to gain weight? Do you have any digestive issues such as diarrhea, constipation, or indigestion? Specifically, how many pounds of beef do you eat per week? How many eggs per week? How many pounds of chicken per week? Thanks. XXXXX
I had my colon removed (colitis), but they said no nutrient absorption happens there anyway. Because of this, I can't answer whether or not I have diarrhea. I don't keep track anymore of my intake, but the meats are usually chicken or fish because I don't like steak that much, and I have rice protein powder every day. What can I do to increase nutrient and calorie absorption?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX what another Dr. can chime in as well.
I have to scratch off the dairy you mentioned because of allergy and eggs don't agree with my stomach.
I already have all the supplements you mentioned, but willing to give them yet another try.
I don't even know where I would get that many chicken feet and bones, so I may not be able to do that one.
I really need help!
Ok, if you can send the recipe I will try it.
Which amino acid were you suggesting?
Thanks. I can't do the Bluebonnet since I'm IgG and IgE to whey. Does that mean I can't do the Jo Mar either? Am I already getting these ok from my use of rice protein powder?
