Brief Answer:
Can be due to various causes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The low levels of immunity, decreased body temperature, brain fog, oxygen desaturation, etc are all different symptoms not much related to each other. It can be due to vitamin D3 deficiency, generalized weakness, hypotension, decreased blood supply to brain due to atherosclerosis, etc. Loose hairs, brittle nails and weight gain can be due to an endocrinal disturbance.
All these symptoms need a careful evaluation by your physician and a few investigations to come to a diagnosis so that specific treatment can be started.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
