Sounds like he isn't absorbing food/nutrition.

Has he tried change enzyme brands? Taking more? Is he seeing a gastroenterologist?

There is some weight loss that often happens with the disease. But it isn't normal to have loose stools all the time.

Is he on chemo that causes loose stools?

Things that we did for weight loss.... Saw gastroenterologist, more enzymes, marinol/depression meds (mirtazapine).
