Psychiatrist 's  Response
Jun 2013
Hi there ~

I am sure you husband has an eating disorder or a gastrointestinal disorder that needs to be diagnosed. I suggest that you first visit with your doctor and get a referral to a GI specialist before you visit with a psychiatrist who can help take a complete history if there are no GI conditions and help treat the eating disorder. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day !
