Severe weight loss

My youngest sister participated in a test study group for diabetics. It has been 15 months since her symptoms started.
-she was dropped from the study after breaking out with severe red rashes and swelling.
-she has been tested from head to foot and the specialists still could not determine the cause; she has yet to see an endocrinologist
-the weight loss started and hasn't stopped; she has lost 50 or so pounds and is emaciated looking and unrecognizable
-she is starving all the time and eating doesn't seem to satisfay her hunger
-she has been to the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and the doctors didn't come up with anything
-what can you do for someone who is literally starving and wasting away?
-please help her.
Thank you.
