Poor weight gain, poor appetite and cough are all reasons for a referral. Talk to your doctor if you are concerned. ...Read more

I lost 23 lbs 10 months ago, no abnormality in blood work, i get nausea post big or fatty meals & feel like throwing up, sometimes constipation and less often diarrhea, delayed gastric emptying?

Probably not: I will think in two diagnosis. Gallbladder disease and gastritis/peptic ulcer disease. I will start with an abdominal ultrasound and a hida scan for a complete structural and functional gallbladder study. If negative a endoscopy to r/o intragastric conditions like gastritis. For now avoid fatty, spicy and large meals. Eat 6 small meals a day. See your doctor for a good history and physical. ...Read more
