hi to all. just found this board. my son, soon to be 34, has a low appetite, never before, he has always had a good appetite, he doesn't eat sweets or chips. high protein, lots of rice, fish, anyway: past few months he has lost his appetite, I am wondering if anyone knows of any kind of appetite stimulant???? he has been lifting weights since age 12. he will be 32 in Aug. and only in hospital 3 times, once was just over night. was dignosed at age 24 months.

If his weight is stable, I wouldn't be concerned about this. It's really normal for a man's appetite to decrease, sometimes significantly, when he gets to his thirties. If he is dropping below normal weight for his height, I'd check with his doctor.
