Suffering From Fatigue?

 

 

Have you lost your edge? Are you tired all the time?  Is your motivation,  family life, or your sex life suffering?  This could be the result of a hormone deficiency. 

In Men: One of the trademark symptoms of low testosterone in men is fatigue — the type of tiredness that doesn’t improve after rest. About 5 million men in the Unites States have low testosterone. Along with loss of muscle strength, mood changes, and lack of interest in sex, fatigue is one of the ailment’s most common and debilitating symptoms.

In Women: in the U.S. menopause typical occurs between the ages of 48-55.  Fatigue, with or without insomnia, is very common problem for menopausal or peri-menopausal women.  Women also commonly experience hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, and loss of sex drive.

Both Men & Women:  Low thyroid function is another common cause of fatigue.  Hypothyroidism occurs in both men and women and at any age.  It can also be the cause of weight gain, depression, memory loss, and irritability.  If left untreated hypothyroidism may also increase your risk of developing heart disease.

Understanding Female Fatigue

Understanding Fatigue And Hormonal Balance In Women

 
If your hormones are out of balance, there’s a good chance you aren’t sleeping well. Or you may not be getting the deep restorative sleep you need to feel rested during the day.

Another scenario is that you’re sleeping fine, but still feeling tired. If you’re menopausal, hormones are still the likely cause.

Causes of Fatigue

A Vicious Circle
The other symptoms of menopause and perimenopause are often to blame for fatigue.

The biggest culprit is hot flashes. Hot flashes are a 24-hour-a-day curse. When hot flashes strike at night, they wake you up. And since night sweats can leave you with a case of the chills, getting back to sleep is often difficult.

Mood issues like anxiety and depression also go hand-in-hand with menopause and are notorious for disrupting sleep and causing fatigue. This trend becomes a vicious circle: you feel anxious and depressed, and that results in not being able to sleep; not being able to sleep results in being fatigued; being fatigued results in being even more anxious and depressed, and so on.

Diminished Hormones

Hormone imbalance is at the root of it all. Here’s why:
  • Imbalances in estrogen and progesterone cause night sweats.
  • Imbalances in estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid cause mood issues like anxiety and depression.
  • Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone all play important roles in regulating sleep. Inadequate quantities of one or all of these hormones can disrupt your body clock, and therefore disrupt your sleep schedule.
  • Low thyroid is common during menopause and perimenopause. One of its symptoms is insomnia.
  • Adrenal fatigue, as a consequence of stress and excess cortisol production, is a known sleep disrupter.
  • Deficiencies in any of the hormones listed above can be responsible for a more generalized variety of fatigue that isn’t necessarily connected with quantity or quality of sleep.

Understanding Male Fatigue

Fatigue In Men

Have you lost your edge? If you’re tired all the time, your motivation goes out the window. Work suffers. Your family life suffers. And your sex life suffers.

A Vicious Cycle: Depression and Insomnia

The fatigue associated with andropause can be a byproduct of depression, and depression is a symptom of hormone imbalance in men. Depression is also notorious for disrupting sleep. If you aren’t sleeping well, you guessed it — you’ll be tired. Depression and insomnia will also negatively impact physical activity. Insufficient exercise, in turn, contributes to depression and fatigue. So the cycle goes…

Night Sweats and Fatigue

Night sweats are also symptomatic of hormone imbalance. Yes, men can experience night sweats, too. When they happen, your sleep is disrupted. The result is fatigue.

Metabolism and Fatigue

Changes in metabolism go hand-in-hand with fatigue. When the body is delayed in turning food into fuel due to hormone imbalance, you won’t have as much energy as you used to.

Stress and Adrenal Fatigue

Each of the symptoms above can cause significant stress for men. When the body is under stress, the adrenal glands release cortisol. If they secrete too much cortisol for too long, they become fatigued and cortisol production becomes inadequate. This reduced production of cortisol will leave you feeling exhausted.

Treatment for Fatigue in Men

The key to treating your fatigue during andropause is in balancing your hormones. Getting hormones balanced and back to healthy levels will unlock the secrets to reclaiming your energy and vigor. We have creative solutions by way of supplementing your diet, too. Depression and night sweats will disappear. Your metabolism will be boosted and you’ll even sleep better. In short, you’ll get your edge back.
