People often feel tired and run down, and instead of fixing the problem they reach for caffeine. They end up in a yo yo of being artificially wired and then feeling fatigued again. They are so caught up in surviving each day that they don’t realize they can stop this mad cycling.
Naturally if you are in this cycle you want to fix the problem. A hormonal imbalance can be a cause of your fatigue. Cortisol, Thyroid, and Testosterone are hormones that are often overlooked. Cortisol is your “stress” hormone, Thyroid your “metabolism” hormone, and Testosterone is your “vitality” hormone. If any of these hormones are out of balance it can cause fatigue, among many other potential symptoms.
You may get your blood drawn but are told your labs are normal. It is important to look at your levels to see if they are in the optimal range. Optimal is better than normal. Optimal is living your life full of life and vitality. If you feel tired, this is not normal and a bio-identical specialist can work with you to figure out the cause and the appropriate treatment.
