As mentioned above, it is natural to feel fatigued after exertion. Our bodies typically adapt, however, allowing us to bounce back and become productive once again. The inability to recuperate from fatigue may indicate a more serious medical disorder, such as:

  • Autoimmune disease (such as arthritis or celiac disease) or allergies.
  • Anxiety, depression, or a panic disorder.
  • Anemia or another blood disorder.
  • Chemical dependency, drug interactions, or drug side effects.
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, or a neurological disorder.
  • Hormonal imbalances, including diabetes and thyroid problems.
  • Eating disorders or nutritional deficiencies.
  • Cardiovascular problems, including atherosclerosis and heart disease.
  • Heavy metal poisoning.
  • Chronic pain.
  • Insomnia, sleep apnea, or other sleep disorders

At RMS Center for Advanced Regenerative Medicine,  we treat the patient, not the disease. Our practice is dedicated to comprehensive testing, taking an integrative approach to discovering the underlying causes of your fatigue using state of the art diagnostic technologies and developing a natural treatment program specifically for your case.

Treating fatigue is one of our specialties!  We first perform a comprehensive interview to begin to understand all the environmental factors that may be causing your fatigue, including lifestyle, diet, and work habits. To understand the elements of your body physiology that may be making it difficult to recover from exertion, we may also perform the following diagnostics:

TRH stimulation test. TRH, or thyrotropin-releasing hormone, is a molecule that regulated production of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which, as the name would suggest, stimulates the thyroid to secrete hormones. Through these hormones, the thyroid directs how the body burns energy. If the thyroid activity is not high enough (hypothyroidism) or too high (hyperthyroidism), fatigue may result.

ACTH stimulation test. The adrenal glands also influence our stress response by releasing the hormone cortisol in response to ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) from the pituitary gland. During this test, the doctor will test the blood for basal cortisol (and ACTH) levels, inject ACTH, and then measure the cortisol levels in the blood an hour later. Insufficient cortisol may indicate adrenal insufficiencies such as adrenal fatigue syndrome or Addison’s disease.

Heavy metal testing. The accumulation of heavy metals, such as lead, can also lead to fatigue. Samples will be taken for blood tests and other diagnostics that will help us determine if you may be experiencing heavy metal toxicity.

Testing for hormonal and metabolic balance. From insulin to sex hormones, there are a variety of misdirected (or overzealous) hormonal cues in the body that may be effecting how well your body metabolizes food and uses the energy from it. By generating a comprehensive hormonal and metabolic profile, we can potentially identify physiological imbalances that are causing you undue fatigue.
