Gaining weight and maintaining a healthy weight can be challenging. Poor nutrition or unintended weight loss is often associated with acute or chronic medical conditions and may include loss of energy, increased susceptibility to infections, and slower recovery from illness. A thorough medical examination may help determine the potential cause of weight loss or being unable to maintain or gain weight.
An important part of managing low body weight is providing proper nutrition. For some individuals, it is difficult to meet nutritional requirements through regular food alone. Nestlé Health Science offers a variety of nutritionally complete beverages and nutritional supplements to help meet weight gain or weight maintenance requirements. Individuals should check with their healthcare professional to determine which type of nutritional supplement may be most appropriate.
