Fatigue in Monroe is not simply being tired but is often a symptom of an underlying medical issue that should be addressed by a medical professional. Solving the problem may take a little time but the results can be life-changing and enervating.
Here are a few common causes for fatigue that bear consideration. This is only a partial list of possibilities :
- Not enough sleep. Most people require from 7-8 hours per night and few individuals actually accomplish this goal.
- Sleep apnea. This disorder causes the sleeper to stop breathing numerous times throughout the night and severely disrupts sleep patterns. Snoring and snorting generally accompany this condition.
- Eating habits. An unhealthy diet or not enough food is a common culprit.
- Iron deficient anemia. Lack of iron in red blood cells decreases oxygen levels.
- Depression. This is usually more serious than just feeling sad. Intervention is necessary.
- Hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. This metabolism-regulating gland affects energy levels.
- Excess caffeine consumption. While it may seem that caffeine gives you energy, too much has the opposite effect in most people.
- UTI or urinary tract infection. You may not even be aware that you have one.
- Diabetes. Both high and low blood sugar cause loss of energy.
- Dehydration. Not drinking enough water and other replenishing liquids often leads to fatigue.
