Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS) -
Posted by admin December 19, 2012 at 11:51 am
A common symptom of andropause is fatigue in men which results from the combination of many other symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Fatigue is a condition in which you feel tired or worn out over an extended period of time. You often experience a waning capability for work or every day activities and overall reduced efficiency and sense of achievement.
Testosterone plays an important role in energy production. During andropause, diminished testosterone levels are a major cause behind insomnia or sleep apnea, both of which contribute to fatigue in men. In addition to diminished testosterone, interruption of sleep in men can be caused by symptoms such as night sweats, depression, irritability, weight gain and stress.
Night sweats in men with fatigue add to insomnia and fatigue because they make it difficult to get a good nights rest. Having to get up in the middle of the night over a period of time can lead to sleep deprivation and ultimately fatigue. Irritability and depression, two very frequent symptoms of andropause can be very draining emotionally, causing feelings of weariness and exhaustion. Additional weight gain and loss of muscle mass can leave men feeling sluggish and tired. Stress and high cortisol can leave men feeling overwhelmed and frustrated which clearly affects energy levels. Eating the wrong foods can also leave little energy for the body. While exercise itself is tiring, men with fatigue often feel an energy boost after a workout.Not enough exercise can make fatigue in men worse.

Post Menopause Stress and adrenal fatigue go hand in hand. The adrenal glands, two triangle-shaped glands that sit over the kidneys, are responsible for regulating the bodys response to stress by controlling the hormones released during stress. When stress becomes chronic or is not well managed, the adrenal glands are unable to function optimally. Cortisol is the main adrenal hormone and it is used to manage stress. The highest amount of cortisol is secreted by the adrenals in the morning to get us going, with levels decreasing throughout the day. The adrenals secrete cortisol in response to low blood sugar, stress, exercise, and excitement.
