dp has always been very thin and this does mean very! he has always had an appatite like a horse though!

Up untill about a week ago now although hes starving he says after a couple of mouthfulls hes full, so hes not eating hardly anything so hes always asleep he gets in fromwork and falls asleep then tries to eat sinner then goes to bed.

Hes had his thyroid checked at a routine blood test when he had a physical when we joined our gp.

Any ideas what can help or why its happening?

Sorry Charlee, I've got no idea, just thought I'd bump it up for the night crew, they might have some suggestions

when was his last check at GP

Not sure if you are about and dont want to scaremonger but GP checks dont necessarily look for deeper seated illness. It really is a basic check up. Neighbour has similar symptoms and even went off his drink (he likes a few). Eventually got pushed to GP and discovered signs of cancer. Just go to GP and get another check. Whatever it is, he needs to have checks as this is obviously not him. Let us know how you go.
