My husband is 65, in fair shape, but has little appetite due to the fact when he eats, he gets so hot, keeps wiping his forehead and eyes as if he is sweating, to him he is, but really he isn't,. no matter what the food or where he is, he gets extremely hot... He has blood work done every three months , but nothing indicates why this is happening...

Thanks for posting your query.
Feeling hot after eating is due to the raised metabolic rate of the body after eating as the body has to do work for digestion of food.
This is a physiological phenomenon and does not indicate any type of pathology.
Still it is best to get his blood glucose levels checked and blood pressure monitoring done under care of your physician.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
