Hello all, I'm sure this has already been asked but I thought I'd throw this out there. Does anyone really struggle with keeping weight on with ra? I know some struggle with too much weight but I'm the other way around. I'm currently 5 ft4 and am just below 8 stone. My gp says I am still just within the bmi but my appetite has changed so sometimes don't eat as much as I used to.
I find it really hard to eat the right amount of a calories daily, even though most days I eat a good amount, most of the food isn't that high in calories and pretty healthy. I don't go a bundle on puds, and I'm also a coeliac .
This is well controlled and I eat gf bread and pasta so not cutting out any foods particularly. I also cook loads and enjoy making food for others then find I can't eat it ! I just get worried as I would like a bit more weight and cannot seem to gain it, then worry more ..and I know anxiety can also lessen the appetite! It's a viscous circle! Any thoughts? Or anyone else in the same boat? Xx
