Thank you for your answer, there's a lot of good information there. I don't think I actually have chapped lips, because they are not peeling. I do think I am dehydrated though, so I need to drink more water.
I don't smoke or wear dentures, but I do eat a lot of sugary foods and drink Coke every day (about 1 a day).
I think I can rule out a gum or mouth injury, because I can't think of anything like that happening.
I will have to check into those other conditions you listed to see if one of those could be a possibility, because I honestly do not know.
Thanks again for your answer!
Of all of the things you listed, after looking up other symptoms related to those conditions, Vitamin B2 and B12 deficiencys sound like the most probable, particularly B2. I have many of the symptoms associated with this deficiency. Insomnia, eyes overly sensitive to lights and tired easily and I take 50mcg of Synthroid daily.
I was told by one doctor that I take as much as someone without a thyroid gland would have to take. However, the last few times my thyroid levels were tested, they came up okay.
Is there a certain brand of Vitamin B12 you would recommend? Also, Vitamin B2?
Like i said in my previous post - a multivitamin over the counter preparation can be started for now.
The brands available change from region to region nad i would not be the best person to comment on a specific brand in your area of residence or in your p[art of the country.
I could still look it up for you if you want, let me know the region, country you reside in.
Let me know if you need any other information.
No, that's okay. I just asked because I know some brands of vitamins don't get absorbed into your system as well as others and you end up wasting most of the nutrients in them.
Glad the post was of some help to you.
Let us know about how she is doing and if you need any other information.
Post us about what your doctor advises. Thanks for accepting the answer!
