TATT (tired all the time) is an abbreviation for a problem that many people experience. The NHS UK advises adults to receive between seven and nine hours of sleep every night, and sleep deprivation is a common contributing factor.
But in addition to these medical conditions, lifestyle factors like dehydration and a poor diet can also contribute to weariness, as can sleep apnea, anemia, an overactive or underactive thyroid, excessive blood sugar levels, and sleep apnea.
Breathing stops and starts repeatedly while you sleep due to sleep apnea, which results in restless sleep and daytime weariness. Blood testing can identify iron or vitamin B12 deficiencies, which can lead to anemia.
Lethargy and exhaustion can result from an overactive thyroid, which can cause the body to slow down or accelerate.
- TATT refers to excessive sleep deprivation, affecting many people.
- Sleep apnea causes restless sleep, fatigue, and potential anemia.
- Fatigue caused by lifestyle factors; a balanced diet helps.
Insufficient insulin production by the pancreas or improper energy metabolism by the organism can both result in high blood sugar levels and an excess of glucose in the blood.
Fatigue can also be caused by lifestyle factors including dehydration and a poor diet. Instead, a balanced, healthy diet rich in whole grains, fresh fruits, seasonal vegetables, and healthy fats can aid in reducing fatigue. If you’re suffering inexplicable exhaustion, see a doctor.
