I have a brother that is only 46y/o with cerebral atrophy of 40%, hypothyroidism,hypogonadism, hypoadrenalism, severe anemia, fatigue, respiratory problems, weight loss of 65+ lbs in last 8 months among other things. this has al happened in last 11 months. He has seen several Dr's and has many tests and no one seems to come up with anything. He told me the other day that he knew he was dying, just unsure from what. can someone please help. He has survived three bouts of cancer in earlier years of his life and is sicker now than with any of them.

  • I am so sorry that your brother, you and your family are going through this. It does sound like his body is really shutting down, and I don't know what to offer, but my prayers.Just don't forget to at least consult with a traditional Chinese acupuncture doctor, or any other alternative practitioners that you find interesting...at this point, there isn't anything to lose in trying, and any gain is worthwhile. 46 is so young to be going through this kind of health trouble. Wish I had more to offer you.Shula
