Can't Put On Weight

23 May 2012 - 11:30 PM

Hi guys,

I was recently diagonised with Celiac disease. I have been extremely underweight for 1 year. 45 kg for 167m

I live in Dubai. The doctors just kept telling me that i should be happy that i was thin. I used to have a curvy normal body. That I should just eat more. I went on a 3000 cal diet - (all carbs, pastas, pizzas, ice-cream, junk food ect...) for a few months and put on 2 kg - still nothing.

Then 2 months late the doctor where i had undergone the colonoscopy called and advised that my small intestine was damaged, i went back and did the blood test. Apparently the figures were extremely high.

Ever since I have been Gluten free, now from my own diagnosis i think that i cannot tolerate Soy. I drank SILK SOY Vanilla flavor yesterday and felt ill, I also tried to start taking a Soy Based weight gainer and my system relapsed a few days ago.

My weight that had finally reached 48kg is now at 46kg. So frustrated.

Im taking: Calcium/Mag, Vitamin D, Glutamine, Folic Acid, and Fish Oil daily as this is supposed to heal the intestine. Doctors here do not know much about this condition and haven't prescribed anything.

Can anyone advise how i can start gaining weight again, I feel like its a lost case. Just want to be a healthy woman again.
