Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

If thyroid gland abnormalities , tuberculosis, hepatitis and malignancy are ruled out by a TLC, Thyroid function tests, hepatitis profile, sputum AFB after a due physical exam then most likely there is no serious cause and you can concentrate on increasing the caloric intake moderately.

Wishing you best of health
