How can nausea upon eating, loss of appetite and stomach growling be treated in an 18-year-old?

Hello! My name is XXXX I m 18, weight 100lbs, and am 5 1. I ll just be quick and simple. During the summer (2018) I had to throw up in the middle of the night. Since then I have completely lost my appetite for anything. My stomach growls so I know that he get hungry, but when ever I see food I feel sick. I don t feel the need to lose weight, all I want is to know why my appetite is gone ever since that one night I threw up. Thank you :)

Hello,

Medical conditions that cause loss of appetite are Anorexia nervosa, clinical depression, IBS, Crohn's disease, liver dysfunction, COPD, thyroid issues, metabolic problems, etc.

You are suggested to visit a GP, get physically examined. Get all the blood & Imaging tests done. Get assesses & treated at the earliest. In the meantime, take liver tonics, antacids, PPI's & enzymes to avoid indigestion. Take small amount of food 3-4 times a day. Avoid addictions if any. Avoid fried, junk food. Your treatment will depend upon the pathology detected.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K, General & Family Physician
