Food Aversion – not anorexia but it’s a big problem

I hope to post on this issue that plagues so many who have been on chemotherapy or have conditions and GI systems that profoundly limit what can be eaten.

If you have comments that may help others, please add them. It can be the death of some people including one young boy who is 11 years old, 5 feet tall and barely 50 pounds. He has failed 5 prescription medications including marinol that I have never see effective for cancer patients and those with HIV/AIDS, including those who use marijuana.

.

It’s a journey that has led to exploration of flavor and disguising foods in ways that make them less averse.

Medical marijuana can help adults – but it (THC) is illegal to give to children, and munchies are very difficult to avoid. Weight gain is not welcome, especially if it is from pastas and sweets rather than protein, grains, veggies, fruit.

.

Good choices but too limited:

Beans such as pinto beans, dal, eggs, milk, cheese, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, pork, at times shrimp, steel cut oatmeal, rice, toast.
