Brief Answer:
Please post your specific concerns.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It will be impossible to understand the reason for your dislike. Further I don't see a medical reason that can explain your dislike. Do you mean you have a low appetite or is it your dietary preference. Please post your specific medical concerns to discuss about it.

Brief Answer:
What you describe is reduced appetite...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

What you described seems like reduced appetite. It may be related to what you eat and consume during the rest of the day. Following a strict diet timings and avoiding in between snacks may bring the appetite back to normal.

What is your current weight? If you are not losing weight, then you seem to be taking enough calorie. However lack of complete diet may result in other nutritional deficiency.

It would also be worthwhile to see a doctor who can check for anemia, thyroid disorder, blood sugar disturbance, nutritional assessment and metabolic conditions. If any abnormality is found, it should be corrected.

In short, based on this short history I will not be able to give you a complete solution. You can consider your diet pattern and correct it as described above. If symptoms persist, you need to see a doctor who will test for aforementioned conditions.

Hope this is clear.

My friend, Jay has a son, Jimmy, age 8, and is well-nourished so she tries to make sure that besides eating healthy that he take a daily child’s multivitamin/mineral pill that also includes 10 mg of iron. She’s particularly concerned that he get enough iron because she’s read that iron-deficiency anemia is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in children. Therefore, she also gives him an additional iron supplement containing 30 mg of iron that was given to her at the health clinic to take because her hemoglobin levels were low. At Jimmy’s latest health check-up, the pediatrician notices that his growth rate has decreased since his check-up last year and is now below average for his age, and Mrs. Jones reports that Jimmy’s appetite has decreased lately and he hasn’t been eating as much. When closely questioned by the physician, Mrs. Jones tells him about the supplements she’s been giving her son. The doctor feels that Jimmy is indeed suffering from a nutritional deficiency, but it isn’t iron!
