Low Energy & Vitality Q & A

What are the effects of having a lack of energy?

When you experience a sudden loss of energy, it affects your overall health. It’s characterized by persistent tiredness or fatigue and is often associated with depression. In many cases, it strips you of your motivation to partake in activities you enjoy or engage with people socially and impairs your ability to function at work or at school.

What causes a sudden loss of energy and vitality?

A sudden loss of energy is often brought on by environmental or lifestyle factors, including:

  • Sleeping problems
  • Overworking yourself
  • Stress
  • Lack of exercise
  • General boredom

Certain health conditions, such as liver failure, kidney failure, and heart disease, also lead to low energy or chronic low energy. But vitamin and hormone deficiencies are a common cause of low energy in patients that Dr. Hahn sees. These include:

Low testosterone levels

If you’re a man, your body ’s testosterone production drops off as you age. Testosterone is an essential hormone in your body, maintaining, among other things, bone density, muscles mass, and sex drive. An abnormal drop in testosterone levels can affect your sex drive, increase body fat, rid you of motivation, and lead to serious problems like insomnia.

Vitamin B-12 deficiency

A deficiency of the vitamin B-12 often leads to other issues, commonly a low red blood cell count. This makes it difficult for your body’s cells to get sufficient oxygen, which can lead to fatigue.

How is a lack of energy diagnosed?

If you come to see Dr. Hahn reporting a lack of energy, he performs a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and discusses your symptoms with you. First, he wants to rule out environmental factors and serious underlying conditions such as thyroid issues or high blood pressure.

In most cases, he uses blood tests to help him make accurate diagnoses and to detect potential hormone or vitamin deficiencies.

What types of treatment can help restore my lost vitality?

Frequently, improved nutrition and exercise can help bring back your energy and recapture your vitality. If you have low testosterone levels or a vitamin B-12 deficiency, Dr. Hahn provides testosterone therapy to replace testosterone and boost your body’s ability to produce it, as well as B-12 injections to increase your body’s supply.
