My son 10 years old is thin. He takes too much time for food and is selective on foods. Is there any medicine/tonic which I can safely give to him to increase his appetite and weight?

Hi There is no need for appetite stimulant. Each child is unique. If he eats slowly, be patient and let him take time to finish food. Don’t force any food. Introduce new food gradually. Always encourage him to eat healthy food by reasoning out (why it’s important to eat healthy food). Try making new recipe using healthy stuff. Involve him in cooking which will encourage him to eat well and not waste food.

High insulin- this means you have insulin resistance. It's difficult to lose weight when you have insulin resistance. It's managed with change of diet, medication and exercise. If you take steroids, you will again put on weight. Weight lifting and resistance exercise helps with insulin resistance. Cutting down refined carbohydrates and avoiding added sugars also helps with insulin resistance.

Generally, eating processed food is not recommended. My advise is, avoid it. If you want to gain weight, eat protein and micronutrients rich foods like multigrain, Ragi porridge with milk. Have legumes everyday.

Hi, I do gym and I started taking whey protein and its content is milk and soy. I have thyroid and taking 75 MG eltroxin tablet everyday. My TSH is 2.3. I heard soy is not good for those suffering with thyroid. Now since the content of my whey protein is milk and soy. I want to know is soy really not good for me?

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, PG - Graduate Diploma In Health Sciences In Diabetology, MD - Bio-Chemistry

There are many controversies surrounding soy. Some studies say soy protein is good and beneficial. But some studies say that it may be an allergen especially the GMO soy. Having too much of soy might give thyroid issues (more common in women than men). Taking in moderation will not affect thyroid hormones. You can try pea protein instead of soy protein, if you are worried.
