Fatigue is a common term that describes a general feeling of tiredness and lack of energy. Fatigue is often accompanied by:
- Brain fog
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
Fatigue is also a plague of epidemic proportions in the United States. In some cases, fatigue is a symptom of an underlying medical problem that requires medical treatment. Most of the time, however, fatigue can be traced to one or more of your lifestyle habits, oftentimes related to unhealthy eating. If your fatigue has persisted for two or more weeks despite making an effort to rest, reduce stress, choose a healthy diet, and drink plenty of fluids, you should call and make an appointment.
If you have not had a physical within the last year, we will suggest a physical exam with our advanced lab testing to provide a current picture of your health status. Dr. Johnson and his staff will review these results with you. Additionally, Dr. Johnson’s nutritional testing may be suggested to pinpoint any sensitivities in your diet. His nutritionist will meet with you and provide nutritional consultation that will help overcome your fatigue and let you live your life with more vitality. Possibly, low vitamin D, iron, or B12, excessive simple carbohydrates (breads, cakes, pastries, pastas, crackers, etc.) or food sensitivities are the cause, so we evaluate your individual issues and provide instruction and a plan to eliminate the fatigue.
