Hair loss over a year, eyesight deteriorating
Hi doc.

Im 22 years old and for the past year my hair has been falling out (more than usual) and all of a sudden my eyesight has started to rapidly deteriorate which is really scaring me.
I hardly ever have enough energy to last through the day, have a week immune system, and had glandular fever when i was 16.
I am on the pill Ginette and Lexamil anti-depressant
What could it be?

Thanks so much for your time

Hallo Lee
You need to have your blood sugar, thyroid hormone levels and iron levels tested as a start. Your doctor can also have a look at your full blood count to see if you have underlying viral infection.
