Hi there,

When was last time he saw a doctor and had bloodwork?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 6 months ago.

Unfortunately, this is very difficult because he's going to need to see a medical professional to get blood work to evaluate his kidneys, liver, and endocrine diseases. In addition, he should have his blood counts as well as electrolytes evaluated.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok. Thanks
Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 6 months ago.

Does he have any medical problems or was he ever diagnosed with any medical problems?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 6 months ago.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

I'm here to help as much as possible.

Unfortunately there's not much to nausea without a diagnosis.
