He has to check his thyroid status as that is one of the common causes. If it is normal, let him have adequate sleep in the day though he works in night shifts. Good sleep is very essential. Let him have adequate food at night during work. Should have high protein diet like eggs, dal, pulses, etc. Also he should do gym exercises to build muscular mass.

Should go for an appetite stimulant. Let him check his thyroid status as well.
