Why we feel tired all the time – How to reduce fatigue?

Frequent fatigue can be the sign of a condition.

The causes for which we feel tired can be multiple: sleeplessness, stress, inadequate nutrition, dehydration, lack of minerals or vitamins (such as Na, Mg, Fe, B12), endocrine diseases (hypothyroidism), heart disease, convalescence after infections, pulmonary diseases (pulmonary fibrosis, COPD), diabetes mellitus.

It seems that an adult body needs 6-7 hours of sleep per night, as well as the time we go to sleep and which should be before midnight.

Dehydration causes fatigue by lowering cardiac output and, implicitly, vital organ perfusion. Thus, in the absence of proper tissue oxygenation, cellular metabolism disorders occur which, in cases where insufficient oxygenation is not corrected for a longer period of time, can be felt by the body as a state of fatigue. Ingesting 30ml / kg bodyweight and quitting smoking can improve fatigue,
