Why Men Have Low Energy (Serial) – Part 1
What Causes Low Energy in Men and What are Their Choices
“I’m Just too tired”
Everyone has phases of low energy when we just want to veg out on the couch. But prolonged mental and physical fatigue and chronic low energy can be a sign of serious health problems. Men have a unique set of reasons why they may experience fatigue for more than a few weeks at a time.
Low Testosterone Troubles
Men gradually produce less testosterone as they age. Testosterone works hard in the body, maintaining everything from bone density to muscle mass to sex drive and beyond. A significant drop in testosterone levels can result in a reduced sex drive, increased body fat, decreased motivation, and sleep problems like insomnia. These symptoms can add up to chronic low energy, and mental and physical fatigue.
You have a choice!
Therapy is now available to supplement testosterone. Blood tests are necessary to see if you suffer from low testosterone. A discussion with your doctor is important for understanding the causes of low testosterone-related symptoms, as well as the appropriate treatments and potential side effects.
Another possibility that might help with this issue is testosterone-boosting foods! Check that out, too.
