Problem with being UNDER WEIGHT: Hello, I am a 22

Patient

Q: Problem with being UNDER WEIGHT: Hello, I am a 22 year old woman weighing 36 kgs. I have food which is rich in nutrition. My HB count is around 13. I am neither weak. But why am I weighing so low is my question.. And more importantly my parents were also under weight when they wee of my age. Now they are fine. May be because of hereditary? Though I try a lot to gain weight, I simply can't! I am really frustrated about it. Please, I need an answer. Waiting for your response. Thanks in advance.
Thanks and regards,
Dsm
