Feeling tired and run down is not fun, and can be distressing in itself. I agree with Caroliene that it is definately worth checking if Diabetes is on the cards, particularly if you are carring a bit to much weight, have a sit down job, stressed, or just over the magic middle number of years. Prevention is much better than cure, and if you are in the pre-diabetic, or are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, the changes are the same, but it wil minimise the damage to your organs such as the kidney, eyes, nerves and self esteem.
Being tired and run down, could also be related to not enough sleep so sleep apneoa, insomnia and just not getting into a deep sleep could be contributing factors. Consider the other possible factors of your lifestyle that may be creating this experience.
Food choices play a huge role in the way we feel. Consider how much fruit and veg you eat, how much processed foods you buy and this includes bottled, packaged, take away and restaurant meals. How much processed drinks - soft drinks, sports, coffee, tea, etc.
Have you had a recent high stress incident, or been ill? This too places a burden on the body which can literally be felt for weeks or months after the event.
So, these are my suggestion to you….. Get a check up at your GP and ask for a diabetes check and full blood count. Who knows you might just save years of your life.
Check in with the foods you eat - how much fresh compared to processed foods are you eating, and, are they best ones for you?
What is your lifestyle - activity vs sitting for work and travel etc.
Stress, and anxiety that depletes without knowing it.
If your bloods come back clear, then that is peace of mind you can then move through eliminating the other possible reasons. Speak with a trained APD dietitian, counsellor or exercise phys depending on the area of concern. Look after you, as there is only one of you. :)
