Eating Disorders Expert
It must be very difficult for you to be experiencing what your father is going through. However, your father is not so much suffering from an eating disorder like anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or binge eating disorder, which is the focus of this forum. Rather, your father's lack of appetite and difficulty is very typical of cancer sufferers, especially while undergong chemotherapy. I would suggest you either post you concern to the DietDoc forum on Health24.com or join you father in consulting with a registered dietician who has experience in working with cancer sufferers and have your father prescribed a diet that will help him eat a balanced diet. I hope this helps.
