Experiencing extreme fatigue? Here are common causes – and markers you can test

Experiencing extreme fatigue? Here are common causes – and markers you can test

Fatigue beyond the ordinary that persists despite sufficient sleep and rest may have underlying causes. These could, for example, include a lack of iron or vitamin D. Here, you can learn more about possible reasons for fatigue and how to obtain information about your levels.

6 Health factors extreme fatigue can be linked to

Darkness and a busy schedule at home, work, and school are some examples of external factors that can make us tired. If you experience abnormal and constant fatigue, feeling lethargic without a clear cause, it may be valuable to examine your health to identify potential underlying causes for your symptoms.

Low vitamin d levels

During the winter months, especially in northern regions like Sweden, sunlight exposure may be limited, affecting vitamin D levels. Deficiency in vitamin D, occurring at low levels, can be linked to fatigue and decreased well-being. You can test your Vitamin D levels here.

Imbalanced iron status

Iron deficiency or anemia can lead to fatigue and reduced energy. A blood test to measure your hemoglobin, ferritin, iron and other iron-related parameters can provide information about your iron status. Learn more about the iron deficiency test here.

Imbalances in thyroid hormones

Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) is a common cause of fatigue. Testing levels of thyroid hormones such as TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), T3 and T4 can provide insight into thyroid function. The Thyroid Test tests all three markers.

Vitamins and blood sugar

Low levels of B12 vitamin and folate can be associated with fatigue and energy deficiency. These markers are included in the Vitamin and Mineral Check.

A marker measuring average blood sugar levels over time is HbA1c, which can be a relevant blood test to exclude diabetes or pre-diabetes, affecting energy levels.

Low testosterone levels

Low testosterone levels in men can lead to fatigue and reduced energy. A blood test can provide information about testosterone levels. Learn more about the Testosterone Test through a blood test here.
