What causes the lack of energy

Low Testosterone (T) level causing Lack Of Energy

It is important to note that a low level of thyroid hormone can also be linked or lead to a low level of testosterone. The linking of the 2 or individually both leads to chronic fatigue. Treating the thyroid may improve all the symptoms and the goiter and other related diseases.

Hyperthyroidism causing Lack Of Energy

Lack Of Energy can be caused by an overactive thyroid, can also cause fatigue due to a racing heart and an overtaxed system.

You are a perfectionist causing Lack Of Energy


Being a perfectionist can sap someone’s energy, as they spend longer than their less conscientious counterparts worrying and ruminating over their decisions.

This stops them from sleeping, according to Professor Irene Levine, of New York University-Langone School of Medicine.


You are taking too much coffee causing Lack Of Energy

Every body knows that caffeine is a stimulant, and drinking it sends a message to the adrenal glands to produce the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol causing Lack Of Energy.

“The same stress response is triggered in the body through drinking coffee and tea as if it was in imminent physical danger.” said Dr Marilyn Glenville, who is a nutritionist and author of a best selling book “The Natural Health Bible for Women.”

After one cup of tea or coffee, a person might feel energised and alert, she explained. However, the blood sugar tends to dip, and the person ‘crashes’ and feels even more tired.

This often causes them to reach out for yet another cup in the hope to brings back the energy, which begins the cycle all over again–the vicious cycle.

It is not difficult to see that the person ends up ‘chasing’ energy, and over the long run, drinking coffee leaves them forever feeling more and more fatigued.

AT the outset, ‘Caffeine seems to be the answer to tiredness, but it’s a false friend,’ Dr Glenville told. ‘It means energy is on a roller coaster of highs and lows. It makes people more tired in the long term.

‘There’s an analogy between drinking caffeine – or diet Coke and energy drinks – and working towards a deadline.



You’re eating too much high glycemic index carbs causing Lack Of Energy

Dr Glenville said people can actually be tired from foods that are supposed to give them energy.

Filling up on pasta, bread and rice – as well as biscuits, chocolate and crisps – causes spikes and dips in blood sugar that leave a person dozing off in the afternoon, she said.

High GI food cause rapid surge of blood sugar. In response too restore homeostasis, insulin is released to brings sugar down, but it usually overshoot and brings about crash of sugar level. Hence lethargy due to lack of sugar. He then craves for energy again. The cycle of chasing for high GI food starts again.

You have menstrual associated sleep disorder causing Lack Of Energy

Many women will have difficulties sleeping at various points in their menstrual cycle, causing Lack Of Energy, according to studies.

Usually, a woman will toss and turn, or experience daytime sleepiness, in the luteal or premenstrual phase of her cycle – the 11 days before her period is due.

This is due to drops in hormones that occurs at this time.


Not taking sufficient protein causing Lack Of Energy

Many people Lack Of Energy, especially a few hours after lunch before dinner because they are not eating enough protein, says Nicola Shubrook, a nutritionist at a clinic in London.

She told: ‘It takes more time for protein to be broken down in the body so the energy is released more slowly and it fills you up for longer.

No protein diet is presumed to have a high GI diet. ‘If you’re not getting enough protein in your meals your blood sugars will spike and you’ll get a rush of energy, but you’ll also have a crash.

‘Then you might feel tired and lacking in energy – that afternoon slump.’

She recommends eating protein throughout the day to keep energy levels stable.



You have un-diagnosed diabetes causing Lack Of Energy

Lack Of Energy/Tiredness, usually accompanied by sight problems, a constant thirst and passing urine frequently, as well as suffering frequent infections, could be a sign of un-diagnosed type 2 diabetes.

This occurs when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin to function properly, or the body’s cells don’t react to insulin, known as insulin resistance.
