A 50 year old patient was seen in our Family Medical Clinic by Dr. Usha Jain for complaints of feeling tired and having no energy. The patient was a business man and felt his tiredness was from stress and wanted to get medicine for stress.
The patient was evaluated by Dr. Usha Jain who also specializes in antiaging medicine. She ordered a lab test and a chest Xray.
Patient’s chest X-ray was normal and blood tests for thyroid were also normal but testosterone level was low. Patient was advised to have more blood tests for further evaluation and was started on testosterone treatments.
Patient responded to testosterone replacement therapy and got better. His tiredness was gone and he felt more energetic.
Tiredness and low energy can result from many reasons. It can be from hormone deficiency like low thyroid hormone and low testosterone levels.
