Son 22, healthy until about 4 weeks ago. Good Appetite, Works out 5 days a week. Now he is lethargic, weight loss, hungry but, sick when he eats rapid heart rate, hard to focus, brain fuzz. He is a type 1 Diabetic.
Went to ER 9/2/16 said he has the flu, but no vomiting. Endoscopy a week later showed nothing. TSH normal.
He is sick of being sick and I don't know where do go from here. Please Help.
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.
Since your son is a type 1 diabetic, strict monitoring of blood sugar is needed because the symptoms that he is having can be due to fluctuating blood sugar levels as well.
His endoscopy and TSH are normal. You should also get his hemoglobin levels checked as anemia can often cause these symptoms. He should eat more of iron rich foods like liver, lean red meats, beans like kidney, lima, iron fortified whole grains, green vegetables like spinach, tofu, broccoli, asparagus, chicken, nuts, egg yolk and dry fruits.
Please consult a physician and get him investigated for the same.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
