Understanding Fatigue in Men
Have you lost your edge? If you’re tired all the time, your motivation goes out the window. Work suffers. Your family life suffers. And your sex life suffers.
A Vicious Cycle: Depression and Insomnia
The fatigue in men associated with andropause can be a byproduct of depression, and depression is a symptom of hormone imbalance in men. Depression is also notorious for disrupting sleep. If you aren’t sleeping well, you guessed it — you’ll be tired. Depression and insomnia will also negatively impact physical activity. Insufficient exercise, in turn, contributes to depression and fatigue. So the cycle goes…
Night Sweats and Fatigue
Night sweats are also symptomatic of hormone imbalance. Yes, men can experience night sweats, too. When they happen, your sleep is disrupted. The result is fatigue.
Metabolism and Fatigue
Changes in metabolism go hand-in-hand with fatigue. When the body is delayed in turning food into fuel due to hormone imbalance, you won’t have as much energy as you used to.
Stress and Adrenal Fatigue
Each of the symptoms above can cause significant stress for men. When the body is under stress, the adrenal glands release cortisol. If they secrete too much cortisol for too long, they become fatigued and cortisol production becomes inadequate. This reduced production of cortisol will leave you feeling exhausted.
