Endocronologist (Pediatric) Questions Underweight

Why is my son not gaining weight?

My son is 15 years old and is still underweight. He eats normally and isn't exactly active. Why is he not gaining any weight?

Weight gain is usually a balance between caloric intake and physical activity. There are also genetic factors and hormonal factors that play important roles in weight gain. I will recommend you to seek the advice of a endocrinologist to be sure that there is no a hormonal disbalance ( for example hyperthyroidism) with your son.
