The evolution of human lifestyle has seen the invention of many conveniences all designed to streamline the way we live so we have more time to enjoy life, however modern lifestyle has more adverse effects on our health than we care to mention.
The fast pace of life and factors like chronic stress, lack of sleep, overlapping commitments, long working hours and poor diet are responsible for a number of diseases and disorders that often have fatal consequences. One of the less serious consequences that millions of Americans suffer from is fatigue.
According to the National Institute of Health, 1 in 5 Americans are affected by fatigue with the symptom often interfering with their everyday life. For many fatigue is often the first warning sign of something more serious going on because there are a range of diseases and disorders that can cause it.
Here’s a list of 6 disorders that could be causing your fatigue.
People who are depressed struggle with feelings of sadness, anxiety and generally low mood. This is often accompanied by low energy. They may also have difficulty going to sleep or sleeping through the night, which is ultimately what leads fatigue or exhaustion. People with depression usually feel very tired and aren’t interested in doing any activity, regardless of the task or the required amount of effort.
Your thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland that produces hormones that influence essentially every organ, tissue and cell in your body. Those with an underactive thyroid cannot sustain energy long enough, especially when compared to a past level of fitness or ability. Other symptoms include forgetfulness, depression and constipation.
Vitamin B12 deficiency
Severe vitamin B12 deficiency is linked to a type of anaemia known as pernicious anaemia. Pernicious anaemia occurs when your body can’t make enough healthy red blood cells because it can’t absorb enough vitamin B12 and as we’ve seen in Part 1 red blood cells are essential for carrying oxygen to your organs.
If you suspect one of the above mentioned disorders could be causing your fatigue speak to a physician today.
