I see a lot of patients who complain about being tired, sluggish, and just can not seem to lose weight. It can be from many things and the first thing you should do is get a complete blood test in order to better evaluate the cause. Of course, it is also important to ensure that you are getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, eating a healthy diet, etc.
It is very common for patients to have a full work up and to be doing all of the right things lifestyle wise, but still feel tired, etc.
Oftentimes their doctor will tell them that everything is fine. But, the patient knows that something is wrong.
Thyroid disorders and other hormone disorders can often be missed by a doctor. I have found that using bioidentical hormones in patients who clinically appear hormonally imbalanced can reverse the patient’s symptoms and they end up feeling great. The lab tests do not always tell the whole picture. If you feel that something is not right in your body and you feel that you have a hormonal imbalance then please listen to your body.
