Low Testosterone Makes You Constantly Tired

Feeling constantly tired, dragging your feet throughout the day, and having trouble getting up in the morning—this can make day to day life incredibly difficult. If this describes how you feel most days, you might have low testosterone. Low testosterone can cause a variety of issues that prevent men from living their full lives, especially when it comes to your energy levels. 

Being tired from low T can impact almost every area of your life, including your work, relationships, and physical health. Unless you normalize your testosterone levels, this exhaustion will continue to build. Fatigue is cumulative; as it accumulates over weeks and months, its impact on your life will continue to compound. 

When you are constantly tired, even the smallest tasks can seem overwhelming. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can help alleviate this exhaustion and boost your energy so you can get back to living life fully again. By bringing your testosterone levels back within a healthy range, you may notice a significant improvement in energy after beginning your treatment for low T. 

Treating low testosterone can help bring your body back into balance and help stop the cumulative effects of feeling constantly tired. With TRT, you can optimize your energy levels, and even help to improve your sleep and lower your stress levels. Get relief and feel rested so you can take charge of your life again.

Feeling Tired or Exhausted is a Common Symptom of Low T

If you have low T, you may feel tired continuously even though you get a good sleep at night.

Feeling tired can be frustrating enough, but when it persists even if you are getting sufficient sleep, eating well, and exercising regularly, it can be extremely debilitating. Unfortunately, this a very common experience for men with low testosterone levels.

Our bodies are incredibly complex machines, requiring a specific balance in order to function properly. One key aspect of this balance is our hormone levels, which play a crucial role in regulating a wide variety of bodily functions. Some of the key hormones that work together include testosterone, which boosts strength and motivation; cortisol, which controls your stress level; and melatonin, which manages your sleep cycle. Unfortunately, when these levels get out of sync, it can wreak havoc on your energy levels and leave you feeling depleted and sluggish. When you feel more stressed, your cortisol levels rises, causing your testosterone to drop. If your body does not produce sufficient melatonin, you get poor quality sleep, which also reduces your testosterone production.

Being Constantly Tired Has Many Negative Physical Effects

The physical impact of feeling constantly tired from low T can affect your ability to do many things. It could mean you miss out on participating in activities you enjoy or have to use up your sick days at work.

Being constantly tired can have a harsh impact on your overall health. Not only does it lead to uncomfortable physical symptoms, it can also lead to long-term impacts such as a weakened immune system. Studies show that men who are overly tired are more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus, particularly the common cold or flu. Being tired also slows down your recovery time, meaning it takes you longer to feel better when you do get sick.

When your body is continuously tired, it can cause a dangerous chain reaction that ultimately affects your quality of life. So it’s important to treat your low testosterone and stop the exhaustion now to avoid these harmful physical effects.

The negative physical effects of being continuously tired may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Little or no urine
  • Constipation
  • Dry skin
  • Weight gain
  • Waking up frequently at night
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia

Ongoing Exhaustion Can Significantly Impact Your Mental Health

Exhaustion builds up over time and can lead to chronic fatigue. The negative mental effects of chronic fatigue can be just as challenging as the physical symptoms. Men who suffer from chronic fatigue experience a significant impact on their mental health, and consequently on their quality of life. When it comes to mental health, it can often have a snowball effect where one issue leads to another and another, making you feel out of control.

The mental impact of chronic fatigue can include:

  • Lack of interest in normal activities 
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Cynicism, doubt, and pessimism
  • Constantly feeling overwhelmed or stressed

These factors can have a serious impact on your day to day life, and can even contribute to the onset of depression and anxiety. Some of the warning signs that you may be experiencing depression are:

  • Panic attacks
  • Thoughts of harming yourself
  • Several absences from work, leading to being in danger of losing your job
  • Inability to take care of your children or loved ones
  • Lack of attention to personal hygiene

Depression affects over 16 million Americans each year, preventing them from doing many of their daily tasks, leading to a decline in self-confidence and low self-esteem. That is why it is so important for men who are chronically tired from low testosterone to seek medical support. With the right treatment and support system, these negative mental effects can be minimized, allowing for a better quality of life.

TRT Can Help Alleviate Exhaustion and Boost Your Energy

Feeling tired and low on energy can truly hold you back from living your life to the fullest. When you are experiencing exhaustion due to low testosterone levels, it can be frustrating and discouraging. However, there is a solution. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can help alleviate your fatigue and give you the boost of energy you need to jump back into your daily routines. TRT is a safe and effective way to increase your testosterone levels, leaving you feeling revitalized and ready to tackle any challenge life throws your way. A study from 2022 examined fatigue level scores from men on testosterone replacement therapy and those on a placebo. The TRT group results showed half the fatigue levels as the placebo control group, demonstrating that testosterone significantly improved their energy levels.
