Numerous factors or health conditions could be contributing to your fatigue. Going through occasional periods of feeling tired is one thing, but if you’re lethargic most of the time, it could be a sign of a more serious health problem.
The team of men’s health care professionals at Men’s T-Clinic want to help you get to the cause of your fatigue. They look at your overall health, lifestyle, and medical history to determine what areas need improvement or treatment.
Some causes of chronic fatigue include:
As men age, their bodies gradually produce less testosterone, which is normal. But if there is a sudden drop in your testosterone levels, you feel the effects in the form of lower sex drive, increased body fat, and insomnia. Over time, these symptoms can lead to chronic fatigue, both mental and physical, so you just don’t feel like doing anything.
You may not be able to avoid Low T levels as you age, but the condition is highly treatable. Your doctor performs comprehensive blood tests to assess your testosterone levels so he can recommend appropriate and effective treatment options. Some of these options include natural supplements and testosterone replacement therapies (TRT).
Low thyroid hormones, a condition known as hypothyroidism, can also cause dramatic changes to your energy levels and contribute to chronic fatigue. If you suspect your thyroid may be a factor, your doctor can test it to determine if it’s functioning properly.
While hypothyroidism is more common in women than men, it can still affect men, and if left untreated, can become severe. In addition to fatigue, other symptoms of low thyroid levels include:
Men’s health specialists have noted a correlation between low thyroid levels and low testosterone levels. An impaired thyroid often leads to low testosterone levels and chronic fatigue.
If you suffer from symptoms of low testosterone or low thyroid levels, you should never ignore them. Call or schedule an appointment online at one of the Men’s T-Clinic locations so you can get to the bottom of whatever health condition is causing your fatigue.
