What Do Nausea And Cold Sweats After Every Meal Indicate In An Elderly?

default
Posted on Fri, 13 Oct 2017
Question: hello! I messaged you yesterday about my father, who is 72, and who is having health issues. A very nice doctor got back to me. my father has nausea after every meal, gets cold sweats, and is very weak. The doctor that answered me last night said that she thinks he should follow up with a gastroenterologist. He's going to do that. He has made an appointment. I'm just curious, if the gastroenterologist doesn't find anything wrong, can his symptoms be from something else do you think? I mean, of course they can be, but does anything come to mind other than gastro just trying to help him. He's been to many doctors, and no one can tell him what's wrong. Thank you.
