Hi, my father who is this year has developed over the last few years an eating dissorder, which is unusual. It only happens when he is going on holiday!! My parents go away for 7-8 weeks a year and stay in my caravan in the South of France.
He has had this for the last few years and last year it was bad enough that he went to hopsital in france and had lots of tests, that pointed out that he had emphacemia (which was good to find out), but didnt find out why he lost his appetite on these occasions.
Since returning from holiday last year, he has been to see his doctor who cant come up with a reason as to why he doesnt eat.

Can anyone help??? More details will be given to any enquirer

  • My mother has been complaining of a lack of appetite, general disinterest in food (nothing tastes good). She has lost a lot of weight. Doctors have diagnosed her with liver failure (end stage)and related complications. It took multiple tests to come to a difinitive diagnosis ... endoscopy, laproscopy, liver biopsy, blood/chemistry tests. Drs say her loss of appetite is a common reaction at this stage of liver failure ...
