Fatigue & Insomnia
Having trouble sleeping and feeling consistently tired throughout the day are 2 sides of an unfortunate cycle that can affect both women and men with hormonal imbalances. The list of possible causes of fatigue—a general feeling of tiredness unrelated to physical exertion—is long and needs to be thoroughly examined by a physician. Not getting enough sleep is the most common reason people feel fatigued, and hormone levels may play a role in your case.
What Causes Fatigue?
Feeling tired is one of the most common complaints that doctors hear at their practices. Infrequent bouts of fatigue can probably be explained by occasional late nights or long days at work, but chronically feeling tired and listless often involves an underlying issue. Knowing why you’re always fatigued can lead to effective treatment.
Besides insomnia, some of the other most common reasons for fatigue include:
- Nutritionally inadequate diet
- Sleep apnea
- Excessive caffeine
- Hidden urinary tract infection
- Heart disease
- Shift work
- Food allergies
Some people may be suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia, similar conditions with unexplained causes that can occur together.

How Are Hormones and Fatigue Related?
The levels of certain hormones play an integral role in how much energy a person has—or doesn’t have. These chemicals control the body’s processes, such as temperature and heart rate. When these powerful chemicals become even slightly unbalanced, the ripple effect can lead to unwanted symptoms, such as fatigue and insomnia.
Knowing whether the fatigue you’re experiencing is normal or if it’s something to discuss with a physician largely depends on if it’s persistent or seems to be getting more noticeable. If you’re sleeping well and still waking up feeling tired, that’s another indication that there may be an underlying cause of your fatigue.
Fatigue and Insomnia Treatments
Hormone therapy can be part of an overall treatment plan created by a nurse and lifestyle specialist at Rejuvime Medical. Under the supervision of our medical director, these providers identify specific hormones that are responsible for a patient’s fatigue and sleeplessness.
Through blood tests administered and evaluated at Rejuvime Medical, we get a baseline overview of sex hormones, thyroid gland, adrenal function, metabolic function, and overall health. This hormone panel can be used to diagnose testosterone and estrogen deficiency, health risks, and potential thyroid dysfunction prior to initiating hormone replacement therapy. A complete thyroid panel can also determine if a patient has hypothyroidism—an underactive thyroid could be the reason for feeling chronically tired.
If you’re concerned about feeling tired or not getting enough sleep and believe it may be related to hormone levels, you can get more information about treatments for fatigue and insomnia by requesting a consultation or calling (225) 960-1580 to schedule an appointment at one of our 3 locations.Back to Top
