Why Am I So Tired All the Time? The Link Between Fatigue and Low T
Is It Low T?
Do you wake up feeling worn-out after a full night’s sleep? Lack the energy to work out?
If you’re tired all the time, get your testosterone levels checked. Fatigue is one of the most obvious signs of the testosterone deficiency and a simple blood test can identify Low T and help set you back on the path to feeling like yourself again.
“Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms of Low T we see at Men’s Health Memorial,” says Robert Ochoa, Jr., M.D., supervising physician. “As men age, energy levels decrease, but it’s not normal to feel so tired all the time that it interferes with your daily life.”
While chronic fatigue is a symptom of Low T, it’s important to get checked for other medical conditions that can cause low energy including cardiovascular disease, thyroid conditions, sleep apnea, and hypertension. Weight gain and obesity can also cause low energy and fatigue and are also linked to Low T.
Knowing is half the battle
We make it easy to start by offering complimentary lab testing, followed by a comprehensive health assessment to rule out any underlying medical conditions and accurately diagnose Low T.
“Our goal is to get you back to feeling like your healthy self,” Dr. Ochoa adds. “You have options when it comes to treating Low T and we’re focused on providing the treatment option that fits your needs.”
If Low T is the diagnosis and there are no underlying medical conditions causing chronic fatigue, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) may be the treatment option of choice. At Men’s Health Memorial, we believe in personalized treatment plans and regular monitoring to ensure your health and progress throughout the treatment.
