Q. I gained weight rapidly after donating blood. How to get back in shape?


 

Hello doctor,

I am a 19 year old who weighs 68 kg. My height is 5 feet and 3 inches. I used to weigh 57 kg before a blood donation. But, after donating blood, within six months I gained 11 kg. Please tell me how I can get back in shape. Also, I have stretch marks on my body.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query.

  • I would like to inform you that there is no connection between blood donation and weight gain.
  • By following a personalized diet plan, you can achieve the desired weight which is an indirect result of fat loss which can be calculated by the BMI (body mass index).
  • The reason for the stretch marks is a sudden and unhealthy weight gain or drastic unhealthy weight loss. So, you need to get to the desired weight by following a healthy diet plan which will not have any side effects on your body, skin, hair, etc.

For further queries consult a dietician online --> https://icliniq.com./ask-a-doctor-online/dietician
