Could Low Testosterone Cause Low Energy Levels In Men? CJA Balance Investigates…
Did you know that low testosterone levels could be the driving force behind daily tiredness, low energy levels and general fatigue in men?
If you find yourself waking up every morning, feeling like you simply haven’t rested and your tiredness seems to be all that you can think about – then low testosterone could be the culprit.
When a man reaches his 40s, it’s natural to experience a drop in testosterone and, to some extent, in energy levels.
But if daily tiredness, fatigue and low energy levels are really getting the better of you, then you could be experiencing andropause – otherwise known as the male menopause.
Below are some symptoms of low testosterone and andropause:
● Waking feeling exhausted (tiredness, fatigue and low energy levels)
● Your sex life is affected and sex may become non-existent.
● You may feel low in mood, anxious or even depressed as your low energy levels start to get the better of you.
As a result you may be using caffeine and other stimulants to keep yourself going; avoiding social situations because you feel exhausted, and feel a negative impact on your daily activities as you become less active.
CJA Balance Can Help You Recover From Low Energy & Low Testosterone Levels
Book a consultation with CJA Balance to make sure that it IS low testosterone that is making you feel tired. There are many medical conditions that may affect your energy levels, and lead to daily tiredness, including:
● An underactive thyroid
● A vItamin deficiency
● Low testosterone levels
CJA Balance offers at-home blood tests to help pinpoint the cause of your fatigue and low energy levels.
If it IS low testosterone that is behind things then CJA Balance can prescribe testosterone replacement therapy to put an end to your daily tiredness and other symptoms.
Boost Energy Levels – Eat A Healthy, Balanced Diet & Don’t Skip Carbohydrates
Have you been eating a low protein diet and avoiding carbohydrates? If so, then this may be behind fatigue and low energy levels. Be sure to eat a balanced diet, and also look at your alcohol intake. If you find yourself drinking too much on a work night, then this could explain daily tiredness for example.
Give yourself a general health overhaul – eat well, exercise, and drink an adequate amount of water, as dehydration can also cause excessive tiredness. If you have checked things in all of these areas, and are still struggling with low energy levels, then be sure to book in with one of our GMC-registered doctors.
Increase Energy Levels – Get A Good Amount Of Sleep
It goes without saying that not getting enough sleep at night (or not sleeping soundly), could be behind fatigue and tiredness. Make a note of how much sleep you are getting – and, if possible, how many times you wake up during the night – and then sit down and take a look at your findings.
If you spot a pattern emerging, such as waking frequently to go to the toilet, it could be down to a medical issue such as diabetes, for example.
Gathering an overall snapshot of your sleeping patterns can not only help YOU make any required adjustments, it can also be a guide for your CJA Balance doctor.
Talk To A CJA Balance Doctor About Whether Testosterone Replacement Therapy Could Help You
If all of these things have been addressed, and your CJA Balance doctor diagnoses low levels of testosterone, it could be worth getting testosterone replacement therapy to boost your energy levels. Fairly soon after starting testosterone therapy you should notice your symptoms of fatigue and low energy levels subsiding.
Low testosterone levels are not something that you simply have to ‘put up with’, or accept as part and parcel of the ageing process. You CAN do something about it.
