Thank you for visiting health24.com.

I strongly recommend that your father consults a gastroenterologist, in order to have a gastroscopy done, in order to find the cause for his problem. There are a multitude of reasons for his symptoms and the best will be to have a proper diagnosis made and to treat the problem accordingly.

Kind regards
