Fatigue Q & A
What causes chronic fatigue?
Chronic fatigue is often the result of hormone imbalance due to dysfunction in your thyroid. When your body produces too little or too much of a certain hormone, it can cause you to feel tired and unmotivated.
Thyroid dysfunction isn’t the only cause of persistent fatigue. You may also experience excessive tiredness if you have an imbalance in your adrenal system. Adrenal fatigue is a common side effect of environmental stressors and unhealthy lifestyle choices.
How is chronic fatigue diagnosed?
Dr. Wells is highly experienced in diagnosing the root cause of your ongoing fatigue and uses a holistic approach to treatment. Initially, he discusses factors that influence your life, such as occupation, relationships, diet, and exercise routine.
To determine if your fatigue relates to a hormone imbalance, Dr. Wells draws a sample of your blood for analysis. Through blood work, he can analyze levels of different hormones that affect your energy levels, including cortisol from the adrenal glands and reproductive hormones, like estrogen and progesterone.
What treatment options are available for chronic fatigue?
If Dr. Wells identifies a thyroid disorder or hormone imbalance due to conditions like menopause, he can recommend hormone therapy to replenish what you’re missing.
Using a custom treatment plan, Dr. Wells determines the correct dosage and type of hormone replacement you need to achieve relief from your fatigue symptoms and restore energy to your body.
What else can I do to prevent fatigue?
While everyone gets tired from elements of their daily life, it’s important that you take care of yourself to prevent chronic fatigue and maintain good health.
Dr. Wells can recommend lifestyle changes that can boost your natural energy levels. These changes may include:
Staying physically active
Getting plenty of sleep
Staying properly hydrated
Eating fresh, whole foods
Reducing environmental stressors
As your body’s hormone levels begin to even out, you may begin feeling more energetic and motivated. It can take time to achieve optimal results of hormone therapy and Dr. Wells works closely with you to find the right dosage of hormones to help you feel your best.
