posted: Aug. 25, 2021.
18 year old female reports to clinic with symptoms described as body fatigue, brain fog, muscle spasms, blurry vision, weakness and pain. Her parents are frustrated because they have not been able to find any improvement with standard medicine.
She started as a Functional Medicine patient with Dr. Lauren. Labs showed low blood sugar, malabsorption and Epstein Barr Virus. She started a treatment plan consisting of supplements to support the GI and stomach and to detox the kidneys and liver as well as an Autoimmune Paleo style diet to support her immune system and stabilize her blood sugar.
After 6 weeks patients symptoms are almost non existent. She is thrilled to know that her symptoms were just related to nutrient deficiencies and low blood sugar.
