This is the Paediatric Forum which deals with Children's Health but I do need to advise you. When an elderly person like your grandmother loses her appetite and also has a history of ulcers, you need to find out if she has not developed a serious stomach condition such as cancer. Please take her back to the doctor who should find out what is causing your grandmother's symptoms.
