Low energy is a symptom that makes it challenging to complete your daily checklist. You feel tired, fatigued, and unmotivated.
If you’re always tired, your first logical step might be to get some more sleep. You can also try reducing stress if you feel low energy due to burnout. Unfortunately, sometimes these measures aren’t enough to energize you because something deeper is happening.
When you visit the Center for Youthful Aging with low energy, Dr. Arne reviews your medical history and asks about all your symptoms. He also provides blood hormone testing to check your hormone levels and see if you have an imbalance.
Many parts of daily life can drain your energy and cause persistent tiredness. On top of day-to-day stressors, some medical conditions and medications can also cause fatigue and low energy. You should review your current health to determine what’s causing your low energy.
Some of the most common causes of low energy are:
Hormone imbalances are also near the top of the list of common fatigue causes. Fatigue is likely to be among your symptoms if you have low testosterone, are in menopause, or have a thyroid disorder.
Dr. Arne treats low energy according to the type of hormone imbalance causing it. He uses BioTe® bioidentical hormones in the form of pellets, which he implants under your skin. There, they gradually release hormones into your bloodstream to correct the imbalance.
You might notice improvements in your energy in as little as a few weeks, but full hormone optimization with any hormone replacement therapy can take up to six months. Dr. Arne follows up with you throughout treatment to ensure the treatment is effective and prevents possible side effects or complications.
With pellets, you don’t need to worry about taking a pill or shot every day. Plus, you don’t get the fluctuations that happen with other methods as the dosage wears off in your body.
