Is there a way to say ‘lack of appetite‘ in one word? (for instance: ‘disappetite‘ which I found a very few results of it and I’m not sure how much is acceptable).
The patient had disappetite(?).
The medical term for reduced appetite is anorexia. This is the normal medical term for reduced desire to eat for a variety of causes, e.g. illness such as common cold, hormone imbalance, influenza, fever, and others. However, this generic term for appetite loss should not be confused with anorexia nervosa, which is a mental health disorder.

Inappetent. For example: "It is early attended with high fever and marked general weakness and inappetence".

The technical term for loss of appetite is anorexia however if you use this in general conversation people might assume you were referring to a specific condition anorexia nervosa which in fact does not always involve loss of appetite.

I would say I was full. Full, however, means lack of appetite due to a particular reason. That reason being that you have already eaten.
Do you have an appetite?
No I'm full.
Full works in many cases but if you had no appetite because you were sick, you would not say you were full.
