Hi Ladies, Are you gaining weight while working from home during Covid-19? If that is the case, then this is going to help you figure out things especially when these days you have time to think about yourself.
Medical Tests For Weight Gain
- Complete Haemogram – For complete blood count as those women who are Iron-deficient generally experience low energy levels. They have low activity levels too that leads to sudden weight gain. It is also the therapy to increase serum ferritin levels that accompanies weight gain.

All the tests above are Blood tests except for the last one. These tests cover every possibility of malfunction that could be causing weight gain. The approximate cost of these tests is around Rs 7000-8000. I was told that these tests should be done in a span of 6-8 months. However, you can just do a particular test that has given abnormal results in 6 months and the rest once in a year.
By the way, this is exactly how I behave during blood tests 😛
