Customer Question

My mum hasn't been well, has lost a lot of weight and is very confused & seeing things. I took her to Doc for some tests, they did blood & urine tests. The urine tests are clear, some of the samples were not sufficient for testing but the Doc has called us back in to see him on the Blood Count test

What may be wrong
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

How much weight has she lost and does she have any other medical conditions? Did her doctor have anything to say before he drew the labs?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She has lost about 1.5 - 2 stone. She had a UTI in May but nothing showed up this time in urine test
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

OK I can't give you just one diagnosis here but she probably is severely anemic and she may also have a low thyroid problem and perhaps also a vitamin B 12 deficiency

Let me know if you need any more information please
