No appetite and keeps losing weight
Yes, talk to his doctor. There are other drugs that can stimulate appetite. It is a struggle especially when they are nauseated but often it is just a lack of appetite and nothing tastes good from all those chemicals in the body. It can help to give Boost and the like. My preference is for the ones with high protein. I know Ensure has a high protein formula. The protein will help them keep muscle mass and assist with healing.
