My sister (30 years) is going bald. She has been losing her hair for
years, and no new hair has grown back to substitute for the loss.
Her thyroid gland hormone secretion is normal.
My mother (60 years) has lost her olfaction and her threshold for
taste has become higher after she had a common cold. Her sense of
been non-existent for a year now.
Her brain was scanned but no tumour was found.
What could be behind these syndromes? Is there any treatment? (Could
therapy help and what kinds of laser therapy exist?)
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
