01 Dec How to Pump Up Your Energy After 40
There are so many men who find that once they reach the age of 40, all of a sudden their energy levels start to dwindle, and they just don’t have the same pep in their step that they once did. However, for some men, it’s even more than a lack of energy, but it can disrupt their mood, cause them to lose interest in sex, and even face serious depression.
So, what causes this sudden shift?
There are a few different reasons that men of this age tend to start experiencing energy changes. And the first step for adult men is to determine the cause of this energy deficiency. Here are some of the most common causes of energy lag in men 40 and older.
Men who don’t have enough iron in their blood often find themselves battling chronic fatigue. In addition to feeling tired, men who struggle with iron deficiency may also experience pale skin, tingling in their hands and feet, shortness of breath, or dizziness. The good news is, with natural vitamins or dietary changes, many men can maintain healthy iron levels and get their energy back.
Men who have an underactive thyroid often struggle with extreme fatigue. In addition to a lack of energy, they may also experience weight gain and sensitivity to cold. The good news is, you can diagnose thyroid issues with a simple blood test, and treatment options are available.
Sleep deprivation is a very serious and unfortunately common condition in men over 40. This condition is technically defined as getting less than seven-hour of sleep in 24 hours, and it can impact men in different ways. If you aren’t getting enough REM sleep it can lead to issues concentrating along with a lack of energy. Many men with sleep deprivation issues may also experience a loss of interest in sex.
Low testosterone, or low T, is a very common condition in adult men 40 and older. As men get older, their bodies naturally start to produce less testosterone. Low T not only leads to a lack of energy but can also lead to issues with muscle and bones mass. Men with low T may also have unexplained weight gain, hair loss, or lack of sex drive. Here at LT Men’s Clinic, we have a number of treatments that will help restore men’s natural testosterone levels.
