Mine seems to disappear more and more each day. Husband was diagnosed with ALz about 2 yrs ago. Things were pretty good until this past summer. He has stopped eating normally. It is all sweets(donuts,cinnamin buns and soda and candy.) He gets very angry if you tell him he needs to eat more healthy. At his last Drs. visit she told him he could not eat like that. She even wrote him a RX that told him what he was to eat every day. Well that lasted for a week and then he went right back to eating his sweets again. When told the DR was going to be angry. He says then I just won't go again. He says he is not a child and he don't need any one to tell him what to do.. He still drives so he can buy this stuff for himself. He has become very nasty to me especially. We probably have an argument every day. He has lost about 40 lbs since this started. He has lost all his strength and sleeps off and on all day and goes to bed at 11:00 and sleeps till 9:00 and by noon time he is asleep again. He will be 81 next month.and I am worried about him but don't know how to handle this. If I try to talk to him about his eating habits that will start an argument and then he won't talk to me for a couple of days.If I ask him what he would like to have for dinner he will say I don't want anything. I'll get what I want later if I fell like it. On Sunday cooked steak,mashed potatoes and spinach. He ate the mashed potatoes and one very small piece of steak,No spinach and put the rest on his plate in the frig. He said I told you I wasn't hungry. I have tried everything, nothing makes any difference. Any other suggestions?
