She can't stand the shakes, but I tell you what, the woman eats like crazy. If I ate what she eats, I'd gain 5 lbs a week, easy. She even gets up in the middle of the night most nights, and snacks on chips and dip and things like that! So it's not for lack of trying. Her onc suggested perhaps she's becoming diabetic and that could contribute to the weight loss, so she's heading to the internist soon to be properly tested. Her random blood sugar tests at the onc's office have been as high as 190. She might be borderline. It might be partly that, partly cachexia, then throw in the whipple issues and here we are, in double digits for weight now.
