My little girl who is 11 is gaining weight and I dont' know why and neither do the doctors. She weighs 185 pounds and once in 3 months time she gained 40 pounds and then again in 2 weeks time she gained 6 pounds. I have had her thyroid tested and thats fine I have had her sugar tested and thats fine the only thing they've been able to find is that her triglycerides are high and her bad cholesterol is like 3 points from bad and her good cholesterol is low. So what do I do? I need help! My little girls self esteem is getting lower everyday......
