    Dear fellow members,
    I am an 23 year old patient of Insulin Dependant Type-2 DM. I am suffering from this since I was 6 years of old.
    The main reason to write this is I am very skinny and I look like a 16 year old. I want to gain weight. For few months I also joined gym but there was no progress.
    Please if anyone can help me throught this.

    Thanks & Regards,
  2. Beth D.

    Hey Mustafa, welcome here :)
    I would assume you have done this but: What has your doctor said about your current weight? Do you have a BMI that is below normal? Are you tested for other conditions, to exclude other things that might cause you to be underweight?
