What Causes Fatigue in Men?

Fatigue is the state of feeling tired or exhausted and can be one of the more devastating effects of Male Hormonal Imbalance. Andropause can make men feel a decrease in energy levels, making daily tasks that were once routine difficult to complete. These tasks can be more physically demanding day-to-day chores like housecleaning and yard work, or include more extreme examples like lacking the energy to even tie your shoes or comb your hair. Fatigue can even be the cause behind cognitive issues such as lack of concentration or memory lapses.

Because of its ability to sap the energy of men to the point of not being able to complete, or even be motivated to do, everyday tasks, fatigue can have a range of effects.

Conditions that can Develop from Fatigue

  • Weakened Immune System

  • Joint Pain

  • Anxiety

  • Insomnia

  • Depression

What Causes fatigue in Men?

One of the most common causes of fatigue in men occurs when the adrenal glands begin producing more of the hormone cortisol. The body can require more cortisol because of stress, continuous physical overexertion, lack of sleep and several other factors. As the adrenal glands start to produce increased cortisol to keep up with what the body demands, it negatively affects its ability to produce other hormones, including testosterone. A man’s diet can often contribute to this process. A man’s diet should steer clear of certain food additives to help prevent overproduction of cortisol…

Food Additives that Can Contribute to Fatigue

  • Hydrogenated fats

  • Sugar

  • Refined Carbohydrates

  • High Levels of Caffeine

  • Alcohol

Male Hormone Imbalance and Fatigue

Just like other conditions related to Male Hormone Imbalance, fatigue can be directly or indirectly linked to it too. Male Hormone Production is a huge part of a man’s energy levels. So when Andropause causes the amount of testosterone being produced in the male body to decrease, his energy level goes down. This direct link between Male Hormone Imbalance and lowered energy levels can be the beginning, middle and end of what causes fatigue in a man or just one of several other contributing factors.

Lifestyle, nutritional and exercise changes may be a way for a man to reverse the effects of fatigue, but for many, it may require a visit to a licensed Male Rejuvenation and Health Facility staffing qualified physicians. When you visit a NuMale medical center, our doctors can have a man’s hormone levels tested to help determine if Male Hormone Imbalance is at the root of their fatigue. Results usually come on the same visit.

Getting Tested and Treated for Male Hormone Imbalance

While this all sounds awful, the plus side is that fatigue caused by Male Hormone Imbalance, is testable, treatable and correctable. Through treatment, symptoms will decrease and often disappear, allowing men to feel vibrant and more energetic.

At NuMale the treatment of choice is Bioidentical Testosterone Replacement Therapy. The term bioidentical means the testosterone being used will be an exact match of the hormone produced in the male body in chemical makeup and molecular structure. Bioidentical Testosterone Replacement Therapy involves putting testosterone pellets the size of a Tic-Tac under the skin. The pellets slowly dissolve, infusing hormones into the body. This therapy can usually begin the same day of the patient’s first visit after their testosterone and estrogen levels are tested. The procedure is a quick, painless in-office procedure with effects that are felt within days and results that last 5-6 months.

Taking the 1st Step

A visit to a NuMale Medical Center to consult with a qualified licensed physician is the best course of action for many men suffering with fatigue and decreased energy. At our facility men, along with their physician, can discuss the patient’s ongoing symptoms and discuss the best form of treatment to combat fatigue and its symptoms. Each treatment plan will be tailored to the individual patient’s needs as no two cases are alike.
