Doctor Consultation
The patient named Priya used to have a high-calorie intake through junk food and an unhealthy diet but still struggled to gain weight. After a proper evaluation of her self-assessment form and consultation, the doctor learned that she used to skip meals quite often as she has a small appetite. Even she had a naturally thin and lean body due to which she was unable to gain healthy weight. Therefore, the pro-nutritionist customized a weight management plan for her which included a few dietary, lifestyle modifications and some weight gain supplements suitable for her.
Treatment Journey
  • The doctor curated a personalised weight management treatment plan by including necessary weight gain supplements, dietary modifications to help her gain muscle mass and a few lifestyle alterations.
  • Priya commenced her weight gain journey by following every instruction given by the doctor. Due to this, Priya managed to gain weight by 5kg in the first month of her treatment. She started eating calorie-rich, protein-rich and nutrient-dense foods to provide immense energy, strength and muscle growth.
  • By the end of the third month of the treatment duration, Priya was able to see a different version of herself in the mirror. She reported gradual weight gain, reduced digestive problems, elevated energy levels and controlled cravings for junk foods.
  • Priya is now extremely confident and motivated to keep the weight gain routine going as she has gained weight up to 59kg.

Patient Feedback

I was not sure whether I would be able to gain weight or not. I tried everything I found on the internet, whatever my family suggested and whatever my friends told me to do. But the only help I gained trust in was from Nirvasa. They made me realise that a balanced diet, consistent caloric surplus and proper supplementation can only lead to healthy weight gain.
