Hyperthyroidism is a strong possibility, as well as diabetes. I would recommend blood thyroid levels, blood glucose and fructosamine, as well as a blood panel and urinalysis to screen for secondary disease that may be complicating the clinical picture. Additionally, Cushing's syndrome (hyperadrenocorticism) may also cause similiar symptomology.
