    My mom has no appetite, nausea & diabetic. How can we get her to eat?

    She's lost alot of weight. Her strenght is diminishing. She's also a diabetic. We tried Ensure Plus, but it spiked her blood sugar. Meat, chicken and fish make her nauseaous. She didn't like tofu. What other protein sources can we try?

      Thank you all so much for your responses. This is tremendous help. My sister and I are very appreciative.

      We started putting her meals in small 4 oz. containers and protein shakes in small 8 oz bottles. This way she doesn't have to deal with any cooking and doesn't get overwhelmed by any large plates of food. Seems to be helping.

      Thank you again!

      My husband was able to eat soft scrambled or easy over eggs. He also liked greek yogurt to blended fruit smoothies for extra protein.

      You have a compassionate use law in California so ask for medical marijuana.. Try avocado, grilled cheese, eggs, Greek yogurt.
