Medical Care for Gaining Weight

When a person is noticeably underweight, it is extremely important to visit a medical doctor. The biggest problem with being underweight is that the condition is usually secondary to (or the symptom of) an underlying disease. Once a full diagnosis has been made, it may be appropriate to begin taking steps to gain or re-gain weight.
