Hello, I am 24 years old female and my weight is 38 kg. I am losing weight and have become so weak, body and health wise. As mentioned in my recent USG Breasts report, My left axilla reveals multiple matted lymph node with central hilum, largest measuring 21.3 by 6.49 mm. Right axilla is normal and bilateral breasts reveal prominent fibroglandular tissues with echogenic parenchyma. IMPRESSION: Bilateral fibrodenosis and Left axillary lymphadenopathy. My fnac report shows reactive lymphadenitis, But I am having high fever since 4-5 days. Also unable to find the cause of weight loss. Surgeon has to say that its TB definitely but as its not showing in any report (TB gold and mantoux report is normal too) so she cannot start the treatment and suggested me to consult a physician for this infection treatment. My body weakens every day. Now I am very confused what is it. Just infection or TB? And which doctor will treat my problem well. Kindly suggest best treatment and doctor regarding my issue and what next step I should take because its been 2 years I am switching between Highly experienced doctors who charge lots of fee as well. Isn't there is any good doctor who can find and treat the real problem? I am so worried.

Dear Lybrate user Please contact a general physician and they will be able to guide you. Eat good protein in your diet as dhal or Sambhar or Channa or sprouts. If you take eggs eat 4 eggs a day. Make French toast or Bombay toast at least 3 times a week. Drink milk and take curd. Add 2 tablespoon of any protein powder to your milk.

Dear Lybrate user When you are lactating do not try to loose weight. Then it can affect the milk production. Once you finish lactation meet a good dietitian and take a weight loss program. You can take a face to face consult with me or online consult also. Currently reduce fried foods bakery items. Have vegetable at least one cup with lunch and dinner. Have fruits 1 cup at least through the day.

Dear Lybrate User, Thanks for your query. Your food should contain at least 1.5 Cups of green or traditional vegetable in two meals. You should concentrate on taking dhals and whole pulses like Channa and Rajma regularly to increase the protein intake in the diet. Use only 15 ml cooking oil per day or half a litre per month. Do you walk at least 5 days a week.

I have been putting on weight all of a sudden. My legs started swelling every now and then. Got my blood test for thyroid, hormone, cholesterol levels. Everything seems normal. It’s making me depressed most of the times. I am forgetting (mostly not registering) my actions immediately (almost every time) e.g. I would have kept my wallet in my bag, but that action feels like it never got registered in my brain. So I can’t really recall, but the wallet would be in my bag. But I won’t be able to remember that exact moment. I need some help to figure out what is wrong. Please write back. Thanks.

Dear Lybrate User, Sudden weight can go up because of various reasons such as you are above 40 years. Above 40 years the basal metabolic rate goes down. Even though we continue to do the same things as wee did before we tend to put on weight. That is why in olden days they started fasting one meal after the age of 40. For some reason you may have increased the cooking oil in the diet. Or eating out more meals. Or did more exercise before and now have reduced for various reasons. Way forward is eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat less of foods not made at home. Use less cooking oil and eat less of fried foods and bakery items.
