Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
He is taking 2 ensure a day but has always been a small eater and when asked yesterday how he feels he said he feels that his stomach has shrunk.
A factor may be that while in hospital a couple of years ago (following a fall) a nurse commented that he was always eating (he was eating a square of chocolate) and he'd get fat, this was a throw away remark but he did seem to take that on board.
We have done everything to try to get him to eat, just now he is suffering from severe diarrhoea and we are worried this may be the final straw that breaks the camels back!
Thank you I will now try and take this further with his GP
