Hi, have you been tested for an over active thyroid? Because this can cause weight loss and there is a substitute treatment that can balance out your thyroid activity. Yes steroids will help you gain weight but they can be very dangerous as you probably know. Have you tried weight gain shakes? You can get them from chemists and pharmacies, one brand is called 'Build-Up'.
I think you need to discuss this with your GP to find a solution. I hope you get a satisfactory result. Good luck : )
