Whole foods, not eggs, not turkey.
You need a new vet if he canít tell you your critter has a vitamin deficency.
Get some calcium dust with vitamins, (sold at any pet store)dust a bunch or crickets and or roaches and feed the lizard. Offer mice, whole mice, bones, guts,fur, the works.
Up the basking surface temp to around 140.
