Loss of appetite is very common and may result from
your disease, its treatment or your medication. If left
untreated it can lead to weight loss.
A number of factors can cause you to lose your
appetite. For example, changes in the taste buds on
your tongue can make food taste different. Changes
in your stomach can also make you feel full after
eating only small amounts of food. Nausea, retching
or gagging, or other swallowing problems can also
affect your appetite.
It is important to have the right balance of foods to
get the nutrients and energy you need for your body
to function properly.
