Under Weight

What is Under Weight?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest people usea body mass index (BMI) to compute if they are underweight, at a solid weight, or overweight.

Using the BMI is viewed as a decent proportion of a person's weight as it compares their weight to height. For instance, a 170-pound individual may not be overweight if they are tall yet could be overweight if they are short.


There are various reasons why people might be underweight. Sometimes, various fundamental causes might be connected. Reasons for being underweight include:
• Family history
• High metabolism
• Frequent physical movement
• Physical disease or chronic illness
• Mental illnessA

A specialist can help people to distinguish the reason for their low BMI and suggest a treatment plan that permits them to put on weight healthfully.


A few symptoms related to dietary problems include:
• secretive behavior
• sudden, unexplained weight reduction
• refusal to go to family or get-togethers
• appearing exhausted
• refusing to eat with others

If a person has these symptoms, their companions or relatives should urge them to look for professional assistance from a therapist or doctor
