In Your 40s and Fatigued?

Published November 8, 2023

Fatigue in your 40s can be due to a variety of factors, including hormonal changes that are typical during this stage of life. While hormonal imbalances are one possible cause of fatigue, it’s important to consider other factors as well. Here are some hormonal changes and other factors that could contribute to fatigue in your 40s:

Perimenopause and Menopause

Many women in their 40s experience perimenopause, a period of hormonal fluctuations leading up to menopause. These changes can result in symptoms like fatigue, hot flashes, and mood swings.

Thyroid Changes

Thyroid function can change with age, and hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid) becomes more common as people get older. Fatigue is a common symptom of thyroid disorders.

Stress and Lifestyle

Increased stress levels, combined with the demands of work and family life, can contribute to fatigue. Poor sleep, lack of exercise, and an unhealthy diet can also play a role.

Diet and Nutrition

Dietary choices and nutrient deficiencies can impact energy levels. Ensure you’re getting a balanced diet with essential vitamins and minerals.

Sleep Quality

Sleep problems become more common as people age. Sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, can lead to daytime fatigue.

Physical Activity

A sedentary lifestyle can lead to decreased energy levels. Regular physical activity can help boost energy and reduce fatigue.

Mental Health

Stress, anxiety, and depression can cause persistent fatigue. These conditions often require psychological or psychiatric intervention.

Medical Conditions

Chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and heart disease, can lead to fatigue. Medications used to treat these conditions may also contribute to tiredness.

Hormonal Imbalances

Beyond menopause, other hormonal imbalances or disorders could contribute to fatigue. Consult a healthcare provider to assess hormone levels if necessary.

If you are experiencing persistent fatigue, it’s essential to consult a BodyLogicMD practitioner for a comprehensive evaluation. Our team can perform blood tests to check hormone levels, thyroid function, and other potential contributing factors. Based on the results, BodyLogicMD can develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include lifestyle changes, medication, hormone therapy, or other interventions to address the underlying cause of your fatigue.
