Fatigue - Where does it come from?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! Just a quick question for thought. While I am fatigued often, my blood tests show zero deficiencies and great levels. I am not sure scientifically where the fatigue comes from if it isn't a malabsorbtion problem or something like that.

I am certainly not as educated as many on here regarding these issues but I am slowly learning...

Having said that...from what  understand Magnesium levels are hard to ascertain because it is stored in the bones.  But a deficiency can cause fatigue.

Also a lot of these issues cause insomnia and poor quality of sleep.  Would you say that you sleep well?  Meaning fall asleep easily and wake rested?  If not you may not be getting good quality sleep?

Fatigue can be caused by many different things. Most common ones are a CC issue with gluten, a intolerance to a food or a allergy causing it, or a deficiency. Issue with deficiencies is we are all different, some of us have bodies that require a lot more then the recommended amount and less of others. I for one require 3x the dose of magnesium and 2x the dose of B vitamins, niacin, and iron to operate like a semi normal human. I go below these and I just want to laze around and sleep all day. I also find I have to stagger my doses throughout the day to maintain a even level and avoid slumps. Try supplementing and adjusting your doses on these to see how you feel, it took me months to get my regime down.

You might also have a digestive issues where you body is bogging down with something either due to a enzyme issue or intolerance try taking a probiotic, digestive enzyme, and playing with your diet for a bit. Perhaps drop of the common culprits like dairy, grains, oats, etc and try a week without them, Perhaps try paleo with just fats and protein for a week, might be a carb issues, or might be a issue with meats. Who knows we are each different and you have to find what works for you. I wish you luck finding your path and building a regime for your better health.

Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?

Yes! They have been ruled out. All my nutrient and hormone levels are good!
