General Fatigue

What Causes Fatigue

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 of 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.

Fatigue is not just a temporary feeling of tiredness; it can have profound effects on men’s overall health and well-being. Beyond the physical exhaustion, fatigue can lead to cognitive issues such as difficulty concentrating and memory lapses, impacting daily productivity and quality of life. Moreover, persistent fatigue can contribute to the development of various health conditions, including weakened immune system, joint pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Recognizing the wide-ranging implications of fatigue underscores the importance of addressing its underlying causes, particularly those related to male hormonal imbalance.


Conditions that can Develop from Fatigue

  • Weakened Immune System

  • Joint Pain

  • Anxiety

  • Insomnia

  • Depression

Common Causes Of Fatigue

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

Male hormone imbalance, often associated with conditions like andropause, can significantly contribute to fatigue in men. Andropause, characterized by a decline in testosterone levels, can lead to a notable decrease in energy levels, making even simple tasks challenging to accomplish. The interplay between hormones like cortisol and testosterone further exacerbates fatigue, as excessive cortisol production, often triggered by stress and poor dietary choices, can disrupt hormonal balance and energy regulation. Understanding this intricate relationship between male hormone imbalance and fatigue is crucial for developing targeted treatment strategies to restore vitality and improve quality of life.

Holistic Approaches to Fatigue Management

In addition to medical interventions such as Bioidentical Testosterone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), adopting holistic approaches to fatigue management can yield significant benefits for men’s health. Lifestyle modifications encompassing dietary changes, regular exercise, stress management techniques, and adequate sleep hygiene play a pivotal role in combating fatigue and promoting overall well-being. Nutritional interventions aimed at reducing consumption of processed foods high in sugar and hydrogenated fats can help regulate cortisol levels and support hormonal balance. Incorporating regular physical activity not only boosts energy levels but also enhances mood and cognitive function. Moreover, implementing stress-reduction strategies such as mindfulness meditation and relaxation exercises can mitigate the detrimental effects of chronic stress on hormonal equilibrium. By embracing a comprehensive approach to fatigue management that addresses both hormonal imbalances and lifestyle factors, men can reclaim their vitality and lead fulfilling lives.

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.

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.
