Hi
Thanks for your query

I have gone through your query and understand your concern.You may be having vitamin and trace elements deficiency. You can take vitamin and trace elements supplements which can be beneficial. You can get vitamin D and vitamin B12 levels. You should take vitamin D3( for vitamin D deficiency) and Mecobalamin ( for vitamin B12 deficiency).
Another causes you should test is for Diabetes ( by blood sugar test) and thyroid disease ( by thyroid function test) .You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
