Thanks for this question
I'm Dr. Phil
This is clearly a psychological issue is it not?
what is driving this? OCD?
Is he losing weight?
It is probably due to low protein
protein helps hold in fluid
This is definitely affecting his health
It can result in electrolyte issues too
Yes, I do think it is protein.
He could have his albumin checked to prove it
electrolyte issues are when potassium or sodium get out of whack due to malnutrition
