    First off, take her to the vet to be checked for parasites. They're pretty common, and if she does have parasites, that is probably a huge contributor to her low weight. Secondly, feed her more high carb foods like butternut squash and store-bought iguana treats (the moist kind). Also, a half hour bath every day should help her out.
    Good luck!
