Brief Answer: Possible lack in vitamin D,thyroid problem could be suspected Detailed Answer: Hi, The symptoms your son has together with taking prescribed vitamins show the lack of such vitamins in his body. It is good that your son eats a healthy diet, does not take drugs or drink alcohol. This will help him improve his health situation. Going out (sun) and being physically active also will help. - Is it ok for you to send the blood work results of your son in once you have them? I'd really appreciate as it will helped assisting your son further. - Another explanation could be related to any endocrine (hormonal) problem (thyroid, etc.) which must be confirmed by the lab tests. Hope it answered to your inquiry! p.s. if you have other concern, do not hesitate to contact me.
