4 Reasons Why You're Tired All the Time


One of the most common concerns we hear from patients is that they are very fatigued. Between work, family, friends, exercise, and hobbies it’s no wonder we are all tired! However, often we need to look deeper to determine if there are health concerns playing a role in your fatigue.

Here are 4 of the most common causes of fatigue:

1. Adrenal Fatigue

What has become one of the latest buzz terms refers to the effects of long term stress on our adrenal glands. These glands produce cortisol – one of our stress hormones – and their activity can become dysregulated or insufficient over time.

2. Dysglycemia

Undereating, overeating, intake of caffeine, and a diet excessive in carbohydrates can all play a role in creating a blood sugar imbalance

3. Poor Sleep

Whether it’s falling asleep, staying asleep, or being able to sleep long enough, sleep is a necessity that many of us are not getting enough of

4. Hormonal Dysfunction

Our hormonal system is essential for communication between various parts of the brain and various organs, including the thyroid and adrenals, major players in regulating our energy levels
