Hello doctor,

I have been really thin since my childhood. Though somewhere it is genetic now I do not feel comfortable. I am not able to gain weight no matter what I eat. My pelvic bones have started to show slightly. My weight is just 41 at 17.

I have tried eating different foods but no positive result. When I choose exercise as an option, I lose additional weight rather than getting an increased appetite.
