Low Energy and Fatigue: Common Symptoms of Low Testosterone
One-fourth of all Americans have episodes of fatigue characterized by lethargy, low energy and tiredness. Low energy levels are more common in men who are undergoing the transition into andropause. Living with chronic fatigue results in a lower quality of life
Fatigue and Andropause
Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms of andropause. Most men experience fatigue during andropause. “Feeling tired all of the time” is frustrating enough, but to make matters worse, fatigue can cause many other issues. For example, fatigue results in decreased motivation to work, which can result in worsening job performance. Fatigue results in decreased motivation to exercise, which can result in less exercise. Less exercise means a reduction in heart health, more fat accumulation, increased health risks, and a lower quality of life. Fatigue can also result in frustration, and depressed mood and irritability, along with many other unpleasant symptoms.
Male Hormone Imbalance and Fatigue
Male hormones control many processes in the male body, including energy creation at a cellular level. Low testosterone levels are one of the most common causes of fatigue and low energy levels in men. Besides testosterone, thyroid and cortisol imbalance are also important regulators of energy levels.
Although fatigue is mostly caused by hormonal changes during andropause, there are other symptoms of andropause that can cause fatigue, including depression and insomnia.
