Causes of Fatigue and Sleepiness and How to Fight Them.



Fatigue Cause no.1:Not enough Sleep.


It may seem obvious but you could be getting too little Sleep.That can affect your concentration.Adults should get seven to eight hours every night.


FIX: Make Sleep a priority and keep a regular schedule.Ban cell phones,laptopes and PDA's from your bedroom.Still having problem?Seek help from dr. you may have a Sleep disorder.



Fatigue Cause no.2:Sleep Apnea.



Some people think that they are sleeping enough but Sleep Apnea gets in the way.It briefly stops your breathing throughout the night.Each interruption wakes you for a moment,but you may not be aware of it.The result:you are sleep-deprived despite spending eight hours in the bed.


FIX:Loose weight if you are overweight,quit smoking and sleep with a CPAP device to help keep open airway passages at night.




Fatigue Cause no.3:Not Enough Fuel.



Eating too little causes Fatigue,but eating the wrong foods may also be a problem.Eating balanced diet helps keeping your Blood Sugar level in a normal range and prevents the sluggish feeling when your blood sugar drops.


FIX:Always eat breakfast and try to include protein and complex carbohdrates in every meal.For example,eat eggs with whole-grain toast.Also eat meals and snacks throughout the day for sustained energy.



Fatigue Cause no.4:Anemia.



Anemia is aleading cause of Fatigue in women.Menstrual blood loss can cause an Iron deficiency, putting women at risk.Red Blood cells(shown here)are needed because they carry oxygen to your tissues and organs.
FIX:For Anemia caused by Iron deficiency,taking Iron supplements and eating Iron-rich food,such as lean meat,liver,shellfish,bean and enriched cereals,can help.


Fatigue Cause no.5:Depression.


You may think of Depression as a emotional disorder,but it can contribute to many physical  symptoms as well.Fatigue,Headache and loss of appitite are among the most common symptoms.If you feel tired or Down for than a couple of weeks,see your dr.

The thyroid is a small gland at the base of your neck.It controols your metabolism,the speed at which your body converts the fuel into energy.When the glang is underactive and the metabolism functions too slowly,you may feel sluggish and put on weight.

FIX:If a blood test cnforms that your thyroid hormones are low,synthetic hormone can bring you upto the speed.


Fatigue Cause No.7:Diabetes.


In people with diabetes ,abnormally higher levels of sugars remains in the blood stream instead of entering into the body cells,where it would be converted into energy.The result is the body that runs out of steam despite having enough to eat.If you have persistant,unexplained fatigue,ask your dr. about being tested for diabetes.
FIX:Treatments for diabetes may include lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise,insulin therapy and medications to keep the body sugar level in normal range.

Your fatigue can be sign of dehydration.Whether you are working out or working a desk job,your body needs water to work well and to keep cool.If you are thirsty,you're already dehydrated.

I ALMOST FELL INTO SLIGHT ANEMIA YEARS AGO WHEN I WORKED O-LINE IN A KOREAN COMPANY. I TRIED SO HARD TO BATTLE MY IRON LOSS THROUGH DRINKING LOADS OF FRESH MILK AND IRON-ENRICHED VITAMINS.I SOON RESIGNED FROM THE JOB BECAUSE OF THE PRESSURE IT ENTAILED. SURE IT EARNED WELL FOR ME BUT THE SIDETRACK WAS MY HEALTH.

I have tried several natural thyroid supplements without any results. After trying your desiccated porcine tablets product my over all health and energy levels feel so much better.
