    It is quite strange that doctors can not help at all about the constant stomach pain. What kind of tests has he had? What do the doctors say? Why can't he sleep at night? Is it because of pain? If he is so weak that he cannot even stand then probably he need to be fed intravenously. Has it been done?
    May be take him to a naturopath.

    Thanx Monita.There is habit for my father if there any in pain in hisbody (when he was in 30-40s) he will take painkillers immediately and he skip meals due to work.All these had reactions in his stomach. After taking so much painkillers the stomach walls has become very sensitive other than this he has mild stomach ulcer.Doctor suggested for operation but due to his age and body condition its risky.Other than this he has High BP , sugar , muscle sprain in his chest region(this happened due to small accident 15 years ago sometimes it comes and goes in a week) we did all kind of test like treadmill , eco the list goes on but nothing unuaual .Due to family worries and personal reason he lost his sleep for almost 15 years now he is taking sleeping pills .But nowadays even after taking pills he is not sleeping.Couple of doctors told that he is not having any major issue he is only having anxity problem.Dontknow what to do.

    Your father needs serious lifestyle changes. First thing he must stop taking sleeping pills. He is quite weak. Was he given anything intravenously? I will strongly suggest to take him to naturopath. He might be having intestinal fungus(known as candida, you can google this) which grows when there is no good bacteria in the intestines. When people take too many antibiotics, the bacteria is killed along with bad bacteria and results in the fungus growing in intestines. The symptoms are usually unnoticeable apart from the fact that the nutrients are not absorbed properly from food and the person becomes weak. They might prescribe some medicine and a very restricted diet. Once he gets better, he should take regular exercise and meditation which will help him to sleep better. Hope it helps.
    P.s.- There are some diseases that are not classified as diseases by medical association.(strange I know) No doctors would treat these.

    My prayers are with him and god bless him with good health for sure. Be positive and think positive for him. Try playing some devotional music while sleeping or some kind of slow classical music. Other then that ask him to meditate if he does not do sit with him and meditate. try all these. he will get well soon dont worry dear.

    dear Priya,

    You mentioned that your father does not feel hungry and hence does not take food. Wanted to know since when did he have diabetes and also whether he was managing his sugar levels well. Have you gone for a HBA1c test ? Sometimes, in cases of chronic diabetes, the vagus nerve gets damaged. This nerve controls the opening from the stomach to the small instestine and allows the semi digested food to go from the stomach to the intestine at regular intervals. When this nerve gets damaged due to uncontrolled sugar levels, the food does not move out and starts to ferment in the stomach only. It also encourages growth of bacteria. The patient experiences fullness and is unable to have food. If he is force fed then it leads to vomitting. The patient also experiences acidity and discomfort due to which he is unable to sleep at night. Since the body stops producing insulin and is unable to utilize the blood sugars, it starts to break down the body fat for energy requirements. The patient loses weight fast and begins to grow weak.

    Would advise you to take him to a endocronologist. Also check his thyroid and sodium levels.

    Please dont worry - we will definitely keep him in our prayers.

    love,
    Kylie
