I've always been underweight, even before UC. But now it's driving me nuts--I look so skinny esp. when it comes to my arms and I look like I'm 12 b/c I'm so tiny! I looked at a height/weight chart and I'm about 15 lbs. underweight.
If I could gain even 5 lbs, I'd be happy. Are there any specific foods or supplements I should be taking? A dietician told me to just drink Ensure or Boost, but that stuff makes me gag.
