Have you had blood work done to see what you're deficient in. Also what is your past medical history and current symptoms

    If you cant gai nany weight eating..that can be the sign of serious problems. 

    1)Diabetes...have your glucose and H1AC checked...

    2)Amyloidosis.  that diagnosis cant be made easily...and you need other symptoms..leg edema...extreme fatigue.. etc.

    3)Ulcerative colitis or gastric bleed or  iron deficeincty oranemia..get your red blood cells checked. anemia and iron tests

    4)Parasites in the intestines..possible flatworn/ tapeworn etc

    get blood work , stool tests for blood and ova/.parasites to start..

    You need blood work..stool twesting for blood and parasite..

    4)Thyroid issue or similair endocrine disorder

    Hi, Marieelle- Please do as there's suggested and have full bloodwork done. Another possibility is Coeliac Disease. You can find answers or rule out causes with the right tests. Good luck!
