    Cool lack of appetite

    Hi,
    I'm looking for a single word that could replace the expression: "lack of appetite".
    Someone who doesn't want to eat suffers from ........
    It can be a medical word.

    If by appetite you mean 'interest in eating', curmudgeon's suggestion is best.

    If you're referring to a wider sort of appetite (enjoyment of anything), the word is anhedony.
