Everyone feels tired from time to time when they haven’t gotten enough sleep, but if you are constantly feeling exhausted, you may have fatigue. Fatigue is when you are chronically experiencing low levels of energy. Fatigue can be caused by a variety of health conditions, so it is important to come into Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson to identify the source of your fatigue.
Testosterone plays an important role in the body, helping men maintain bone density, muscle mass, and more. When testosterone drops, some symptoms include reduced sex drive, decreased motivation, decreased muscle mass, and fatigue. If you suspect that your fatigue may be caused by low testosterone, Men’s Vitality Center can help. At Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson, we offer testosterone replacement therapy to help men with low T.
When you are experiencing fatigue, a possible cause is low levels of thyroid hormone, or hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, constipation, sensitivity to cold, muscle aches, trouble losing weight, dry skin, depression, and thinning hair. Low levels of thyroid hormone can actually lead to low levels of testosterone, so you may need to be treated with both a thyroid hormone replacement and testosterone replacement therapy.
If you are constantly tired, the issue may be that you are not getting the best quality of sleep. If you have insomnia, sleep apnea, or restless leg syndrome, it could be that you are not sleeping deeply, and this is causing your fatigue.
Many people do not seek out help for depression until their energy levels are too low for them to function. Sometimes, they do not even realize they are depressed until a doctor suggests it. Other symptoms of depression besides fatigue include low mood, feelings of worthlessness, irritability, and loss of interest in work, family, or hobbies.
Regardless of the source of your fatigue, if you are feeling tired and weak constantly, come see a physician at Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson. We can help you identify the cause of your fatigue, and figure out what treatment is best for you.
