Crohn? Unable to Gain weight

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi All,

I really need your help. I have been suffering from this strange disease. It started 1 year ago when my weight was 56 KG (32 years, male).

I started having bloating and started pooping (absolutely normal) pooping 3 to 4 times a day. I lost 16 kgs weight over the time.

Now after this 1 year, all my problem has subsided. I have almost zero bloating, no pain anywhere. But sometimes I poop 2 times a day and that is more than what I eat I think.

The main problem, my weight is not changing no matter what.

One doc is saying I have IBS, another is saying I have celiac and the 3rd and the last one is saying I have Crohn's.

What could be the reason I am unable to gain weight no matter how hard I am try.

Currently, I am taking only lactobacillus pro biotic to heal my gut.

Any help, any suggestion will be immensely appreciated.

Should I buy a plant-based protein supplement?

Kind regards

      I have done multiple testing like liver function test, upper abdomen USG, Blood sugar test, thyroid test, stool test but everything is normal and my doctors are saying since you are feeling any pain anywhere in stomach or chest, there is no colonoscopy. 

      My only concern is excessive pooping and weight gain.

    Pooping twice a day is not excessive!

    I was told by a naturopath that you can expect a poop for every meal that you eat.

    As for the weight issue, are you eating the correct amount of calories?

    To maintain weight it's about 2500 for men and 2000 for women per day.

    So if you want to increase your weight then you would need to increase your calories.
