It may sound far fetched but it's possible that your husband is depressed and needs to be on an anti-depressant. Talk to your doctor about specific anti-depressants for the elderly. Zoloft and Rimron stimulate and inhibit specific neurotransmitters in the brain. The latter of the two actually stimulates appetite. Sometimes people show little symptoms of depression but it still may be an underlying problem.
Also have your husband go to an endocrine specialist he may have a metobolic disorder. Thyroid problem etc.
