Our expert says:
All her symptoms can be related to the underactive thyroid. How long ago has she had her thyroid levels tested and what was the result of the T4 hormone? This is very important to know because it is a clear indication of what her thyroid hormones are doing.
Please refer to the following link regarding hypothyroidism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypothyroidism
Polycystic Ovarian Disease and Insulin Resistant Diabetes Militus go hand in hand. This can also be an explanation for her symptoms. It is therefore, important to treat POD, as well as control her insulin levels as optimal as possible.
All these diseases can explain her symptoms. I suggest that she consults an internal specialist to address her problems step by step, as a global problem.
