Doctor Answers (4) on Weight lost
Firstly as you stated that of late your mother has been losing a lot of weight...it is necessary to know the cause of sudden weight loss.Please take your mother to a physical and get certain tests done.Meanwhile you can introduce milk(milk shakes,milk with honey,milk with pureed dates),paneer,curd,egg,chicken,soy,nuts,dried fruits,ghee and home made butter.Make sure she eats small meals but nutritious ones :)
First find out the reason behind her sudden weight loss. You can increase her calorie intake by just adding a tea spoon of Ghee or butter into her rice and deal also try to give her more proteins in the form of eggs, fish, paneer or soy chunks. Take care.
