My husband has lung disease and liver cirrhosis. Is there anything to help appetite?

Follow

He is "off" food and very weak. His doctor called last week and arranged for blood tests - says he has a slight thyroid deficiency - to get more tests in 3 months! I am wondering if there is anything he could take other than yet more medication. . Doctor didnt offer anything anyway. Probably given up on him. I thought sea vegetables but he would not eat anything like that even when he had a normal appetite. Maybe disguised in soup? There is so much on the internet I am confused.

Thank you Windyridge and Sunnygirl for replies. I am in the UK now and no marijuana here legally. I did ask Doctor about it for my mother who was in a lot of pain but he was horrified at the idea. It was years ago and I had heard it was available medically for multiple sclerosis.

Is medical marijuana legal in your state? I've had friends suffering from cancer who were able to get prescriptions. It was a great help with their pain and increased their appetite.

Is he on Hospice? If so, maybe they could help you.

I wish I knew more. I haven't had to deal with anything like this. I hope others around here will know more.
