7 Reasons Why You’re Always Tired

Understanding Fatigue

Are you struggling to maintain your energy levels through the course of the day? Is your daily workday leaving you more drained than usual? This lingering feeling of tiredness or fatigue can be a sign of a larger problem. Click next to learn how.

Are You Anemic?

People suffering from Anemia can have episodes of chronic fatigue due to a scarcity of red blood cells caused by Iron, Vitamin B-12 and Folic acid deficiencies. Iron-rich foods like Spinach and Iron supplements are generally prescribed in such cases.

It Could Be An Under Active Thyroid (Hypothyroidism)

Your thyroid is a gland that releases hormones to regulate your body’s metabolic rate. Certain ailments like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis can slow down your thyroid activity (Hypothyroidism) and lead to pronounced side effects like depression, fatigue and weight gain.

Check For Diabetes

People suffering from Type 2 diabetes can experience periodic dips in their energy levels from time to time. This is because type 2 diabetes interferes with the body’s energy management capabilities by building resistance against Insulin - a hormone responsible for glucose absorption.

Tired? Could Be A Weak Heart

Are you struggling to carry out activities that previously seemed simple like climbing stairs? Such a drastic drop in stamina coupled with increased spells of dizziness could be a symptom of a weak heart and will require a consultation with a heart specialist to restore your cardiac function.

Fibromyalgia And Fatigue

Fibromyalgia is a common musculoskeletal problem that particularly affects soft tissues and muscles in women. It can lead to intense fatigue, weight gain and put you into a hazy fog (Fibro Fog) that can dull your focus and even lead to anxiety attacks and bouts of depression.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (R.A)

Arthritic disorders like Rheumatism can lead to inflamed joints and joint damage (in more serious cases). Patients of RA will experience difficulties in walking and have bouts of extreme fatigue as a result of this debilitating condition.

Mental Illnesses Like Depression

Lethargy or chronic fatigue are common side effects in people who suffer from mental ailments like Anxiety and Depression. These diseases can be caused due to a host of factors ranging from Bipolar disorder to postpartum depression and can be routinely triggered by traumatic incidents and poor sleeping habits.
