Fatigue Q & A
What is fatigue?
It’s not uncommon to feel tired from time to time, but a good night’s rest should help restore your energy so you feel more like your usual self. However, if you’re chronically fatigued even after rest, then there may be an underlying health issue that’s affecting your energy levels.
What causes fatigue?
You may be feeling fatigued for any number of reasons. Some of the most common causes of fatigue include:
- Lack of quality sleep
- Certain medications
- Changes in hormone levels
- Poor dietary choices
- Too much alcohol or caffeinated beverages
- Recovery from an illness or surgery
- Stress, anxiety, or depression
If your fatigue is affecting your ability to manage your daily responsibilities, or it’s not improving with rest, then you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Paas for an evaluation. To identify the underlying cause of your fatigue, she may conduct a physical exam and request blood work to assess blood counts and hormone levels.
What treatments can improve my fatigue?
Dr. Paas creates a personalized treatment plan to help improve your fatigue based on the severity of your symptoms and the underlying cause that she uncovers. To help give you a boost, she offers injections, including:
The Energy Booster
The energy booster injection is comprised of vitamin B12, which is an essential B vitamin that’s purported to help accelerate your metabolic processes while creating a greater feeling of overall energy. You need vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, regulate your sleep, and assist in the normal functioning of your central nervous system to slow down aging.
Your fatigue may be related to a decrease in your body’s production of growth hormone, which is a condition referred to as somatopause. Common symptoms of somatopause include:
- Loss of energy, vitality, and libido
- Decrease in muscle mass
- Increase in abdominal fat
Sermorelin is biologically similar to your naturally occurring growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) and stimulates your pituitary gland to release more growth hormone. Dr. Paas may recommend sermorelin injections if she determines that somatopause is the underlying cause of your fatigue.
Dr. Paas may also recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, intravenous nutritional therapy, or weight-loss solutions to help your fight against fatigue.
