Underweight?

So as well as me having crohns my daughter also has it. I am quite worried about her she is 12 years old and weighs 19.32 kg is that underweight for a 12 year old?

She is way under the chart for both weight and height for her age.

My 11 yo is about 5th percentile for weight and she weighs about 60 lbs. 42 lbs would be extremely concerning.

Yikes - my kiddo was about 75 - 80 lbs at that age. Has she been diagnosed with Crohn's? What does her GI say about her weight?

She hasnt been diagnosed yet but they are sure its IBD and she is now taking nutrience drinks to help her gain weight. But about her height she is never going to be massive because her dad is short and her grandmother is under 5 foot so shortness runs in the family. Also the dietiton said once her weight is up she should start growing xx
