Since her diagnosis five years ago my mam has gone from a plump 11 stone or so, to 7 and a half stone. At only 4' 11" she is, technically, now in the 'healthy' weight range for her height (although to me she looks very thin, having known her being quite plump for many years). Poor mam, she battled for years to get her weight down, and now this vile illness is doing it for her. However, if she continues on this downward trend, it won't be too long before she's classed as being underweight. I know that many of you will have faced similar problems, and I wondered if anyone could give us some tips as to how to increase her food intake, given that getting her to eat a proper meal is now becoming difficult. The GP has advised increasing carbohydrates, and I've suggested dad give her finger foods that she can walk around and eat. Any other ideas? She has also dramatically reduced the amount of fluid she drinks - she used to be a tea-aholic but now hardly drinks anything. I've told dad about the jelly and ice lollies ideas I've read about on here - any other suggestions would be most welcome.
