Dear B

Thank you for visiting

It is possible that he is suffering from a gastro-intestinal abnormality, which unfortunately can be one of a wide range of diseases. Therefore, I suggest that he consults a gastroenterologist. He will have to get tests done to determine the cause, for instance, blood tests, gastroscopy, colonoscopy etc.
