My answer as follows:

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that it is important performing a comprehensive differential diagnosis between different causes that may lead to your clinical situation ( chronic anemia, thyroid dysfunction, heart failure, kindey or liver dysfunction, vitamin deficiency, etc.).

For this reason, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam and some tests:

- a resting ECG and a cardiac ultrasound to examine your heart function and structure
- a chest X ray study and pulmonary function tests to exclude a lung disease
- complete blood count for anemia
- kidney and liver function tests
- thyroid hormone levels for possible dysfunction
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalance
- vitamin D levels for possible deficiency.

A Doppler ultrasound of the leg vessels would help exclude possible arteriopathy related to atherosclerosis, which could cause leg pain, especially considering the fact that you are diabetic.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above issues.

Hope to have been helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri

Some time ago I was diagnosed with Granuloma Annulare,prescribed some cream which did not help at all. I am getting more spots mainly on my right leg (ankle,knee and calf). They don t hurt, itch or anything like that. I am just concern that this is a symptom of some other underlying problem....white blood cells...Vitamin deficiency etc! Apart from that they are not a good look and worry that they are actually spreading. I read all that is written about the condition. Have you got any suggestion or test I should be having? Thank you.

Hi. Yesterday, my GP diagnosed me with celiac disease. My few symptoms seem to stem from vitamin deficiencies and anaemia through malabsorption i.e memory loss, numb tongue, pallor etc. Both my sister and father also have celiac disease, so I am no stranger to the hard-ships of a gluten-free diet. As a student, I have made an informed decision not to follow this treatment plan, with the knowledge that I would be increasing my risk of cancer, because I feel it would be impossible to fit around my lifestyle. I will be seeing my GP again next week for my follow-up appointment, and am planning to ask for a prescription for strong multivitamins, treatment for my anaemia, and digestive enzymes. In your opinion, how effective will this treatment plan be? Is my GP likely to agree to this? Thanks.

i am a thirty year old female recently i have been noticing a lot of hair loss, handfuls, especially when i shower, i startedd taking b vitamins over the counter and it hasn't really helped. my boyfriend started getting worried and he thinks it might be connected to some mood swings i've been having and thinks i have a vitamin deficiency. also he thinks i should mention that i've been having heartburn and yellow fatty stools and a history of pancreatic cancer in my family. i think he's overreacting but i've lost three members to cancer in the last five years so here i am... asking. what's up, Doc?
