Underweight? Blood test, or what?

I am 19 years old (female), switched to Paleo 6 months ago. I went from 125 pounds to 105 now, and I am 5'7. Stopped having my period four-ish months ago, probably from the weight loss. I eat pretty clean (clean meat, bone broth, zero sugar, lots of veggies, good fat), eat a LOT, and was pretty low carb but have been including a sweet/white potato every day or two for the last couple weeks.

Should I try to eat more/up my carbs/supplement? I am a little scared of gaining weight, could I just do some resistance workouts to gain muscle? And my mom wants me to get blood work, any recommendations for what to get tested for? (My mom works for a doctor, we don't really have a middle man, we just pick whatever.)

Eat more. I'm going to guess that you're wayyyyy undereating. It happened to me when I was vlc/nc; protein and fats are simply very filling. Add carbs or don't that's really up to your and your personal disposition. Do you feel better on carbs? How are your BMs? Skin looking better? These are question that you'll need to answer on your own.

What kind of question are you looking to get answers through blood work?

In any case, yes. Eat more. I'd definitely recommend some weight lifting(or gymnastic type stuff: L sit, planche, manna, back/front lever) for body re-composition. As a female you'd have to be a professional lifter dedicating hours upon hours to the gym or on roids(or both) to gain a significant amount of muscle mass.
