Anonymous asked: is it possible to gain 6kg of water weight if you are seriously malnourished?
completely possible. i have heard of people gaining much more.
but it could mean you have refeeding syndrome which can be quite dangerous. (effects electrolytes, causes fluid retention, can lead to heart attack etc) it is easily treated and managed if caught quickly though. you will need to monitered to be safe. eg: regular bloods, b/p, weights…
if you havent already, make sure you get in contact with your doctor ASAP.
