Doctor :   Hello Thank you posting your query on “Ask the Doctor” You can go for a supplement like Iron, Vitamin B complex, Fo , Folic acid, Zinc, Vitamin D, A, E, Calcium You can continue to take powders like Perfect. The best way to put on healthy weight is by following a healthy diet with balanced carbohydrate and protein contents. I suggest before you start any supplement, you meet a Nutritionist directly and discuss your daily diet. The Nutritionist can also give you some counselling on how further weight gain can be achieved. Hope this was helpful.
