My uncle is 60 years old and his health is decreasing rapidly. He is a smoker and had been diagnosed with COPD, asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. He has just went and had a colonoscopy and 2 polyps have been taken out but no cancer was found. His symptoms are rapid weight loss he weighs 117lbs and used to be a fairly large man. He has yellow on his upper checks and also in the white of his eyes. He is weak and tired all the time and dizzy. He is now starting to have difficulty when trying to swallow something like a sandwich. He eats like a bear but no weight gain. Please help me I am so worried.
