    Mom needs to gain weight

    My mother is a 77 years old and needs to gain weight. She recent spent time in hospital due to low sugar levels as well as irregular heart beats. She has lost a lot of weight during this period. How can she gain the weight again?

    Re: Weight gain

    Hi there are many great weight gain nutritional drinks and shakes that are designed to pack on the calories. However, many have too much added sugar and since your mother has blood glucose problems, it would be important that you find one low in sugar...

    Re: Mom needs to gain weight

    Hi nandipha,

    Welcome to HealthBoards.

    Sometimes I think it is harder to put weight on than to get rid of it, not everyone will agree with me.
    I fit in the same category as your mum though mine isn't due to ill health. At 5ft 3in I weigh just 46kg and eat extremely well (just cant put it on)...
    If I was you I would speak to your Health Worker or Dr about your mum seeing a dietician especially as she has a low sugar problem.
    She would be able to advice you of the correct foods to add weight without upsetting her sugar levels.
    Hope this helps and good luck,

    Solofelix.

    Re: Mom needs to gain weight

    my mom recently increased her weight by the use of boiled potatoes in different recipes, like as in snacking, meals and other recipes. she used that in salads and in the sand witches also, i think this may give you a an idea.
