Cerebral palsy and not gaining weight

Hi All,

I have cerebral palsy, and I have never being able to gain much weight ever since I was a child although I eat healthy and try to exercise.  I'm wondering, is there is a link between cerebral palsy and not being able to gain weight?

Could it be that I have a very high metabolism which means I burn whatever I eat rather quickly?

I appreciate your input.
