Teenage daughter

Hi Dr. Breedt
I took my daughter aged 15 to the GP last week, for a while now she complained of headaches and she stays tired, she had a sore throat and a fever and she is lately always tired. She had her first period last year when she was 14 since then every 3 months she would get boils. The GP trated her for a viral infection and now she completed the antibiotics but she still stays tired and has headaches. She just wants to sleep and does not have such a big appetite. There is times when she feels ok but I am very concerned as they will be staring exams soon.Please help.

Dear concerned mom
Did he do some blood tests ( at least full blood count, thyroid functions, urine tests?) She may be anemic or have a low white cell count, or an underactive thyroid.
