I have recently rescued a male hamster in very similar circumstances who is skin and bones at the moment and severely underweight. I wonder if my scales are wrong.

What did the hamster in your care actually weigh when you rescued her?
She was around 130g but we knew she was pregnant so I'm pretty sure some of that was baby weight. Since then she's up to 220g. Some of that gain is baby weight but I'm sure some of that is just getting better food and nutrition.

If you want to test your scales weigh something you know the weight of! Also sometimes scales need fresh batteries to be accurate.
