I read your question and i understand your concern. Get evaluated for the causes of low weight. If any metabolic disorder ruled out then consult a dietitian for any help with food intervention.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
