On the air of the Russia 1 TV channel, Sergei Agapkin told what diseases can cause constant fatigue, a feeling of exhaustion and lack of mood. According to him, one of the main factors in the occurrence of such conditions can be anemia (or a deficiency of hemoglobin in the blood).
“It could be a vitamin deficiency B12, iron deficiency in the diet, there may be chronic bleeding or inflammatory diseases. When hemoglobin production is disrupted, the blood carries little oxygen. Accordingly, organs and tissues for which oxygen is vital for normal activity, without receiving it, begin to work worse. This can be expressed in a decrease in physical performance, increased fatigue, shortness of breath during physical exertion and a general loss of strength “, – explained a specialist in the studio of the program “On the most important thing.”
He added that similar symptoms can also be observed with hypothyroidism, when not enough hormones are produced that are responsible for the production of energy within our cells. This disease can also be indicated by a lowered pulse, a decrease in body temperature and weight gain.
In addition, constant fatigue can be a symptom of the development of depression. Such conditions are also characterized by decreased appetite, social activity and a feeling of “fruitless sleep”.
