Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Gaining weight with inflammatory bowel disease could be challenging. You should consult your dietitian in this regard and let them have a look and help you with complete dietary plan. Dont try any promotional weight gain supplement with out discussing it with your doctor.

Take care
