Brief Answer:
Further investigative work up is required

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am

I can certainly understand your concern

I have worked through your attached query in detail

Poor body stature in your sister require detailed evaluation of her health issue through appropriate tests.

Further management if any is largely based on the test reports.

I generally prescribe following tests to my patients with such symptoms.

1. Complete blood count
2. Thyroid profile test
3. Fasting and postprandial blood sugar levels
4. Serum Vitamin D and B12
5. Ultrasound abdomen
6. Urine routine examination

Review with reports to determine further course of action.

Post your further questions if any
Thank you
