Low Energy & Fatigue in Men
HRT increases energy levels and can get you on the right path to a healthy, energetic new you.
Can low testosterone cause fatigue in men?
A lack of key hormone levels is one of the main causes of fatigue in men. One of the most significant improvements our patients see with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is vastly improved energy levels. Importantly, for many people, an increase in energy levels is one of the first benefits they experience when they start their bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) journey, with most reporting increased energy levels and motivation within weeks of starting their treatment.
What causes low energy in men?
- Testosterone, thyroid hormones, cortisol, and estrogen all play a role in energy levels.
- As we age, hormone levels diminish, leading to a loss of motivation and sexual desire.
- One of the essential hormones for energy is the thyroid.
- Thyroid issues cause your metabolism to slow down to a snail’s pace, and you will struggle to obtain energy from the food you eat.
- If your testosterone levels decline, motivation levels drop as well, leading to a lack of desire to succeed in your health goals.
- Fading energy is not something that should just be put down to ‘getting older,’ more often than not, it’s your hormones to blame.

How BHRT increases energy
- Thyroid boosts metabolism and increases energy (thyroid medication helps alleviate over 200 age-related symptoms).
- Testosterone increases energy and strength, giving you the motivation to succeed and achieve your goals.
- Testosterone increases red blood cell count via a process called erythropoiesis. This increase in red blood cell numbers improves your blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity from your lungs to tissue cells in every part of your body. Just like every cell in your body needs energy, every cell in your body requires oxygen. When you start your treatment, this increase in red blood cells happens pretty quickly, which may be why people experience an almost instant increase in energy and motivation.
- Restoring optimal testosterone levels leads to reduced symptoms of depression and reduced stress levels.
Not only does testosterone affect you physically, but it also impacts your mental well-being.
Testosterone increases energy and strength, giving you the motivation to succeed and achieve your goals. If your levels decline, motivation levels drop as well, leading to a lack of desire to succeed in your health goals. Testosterone, especially dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the active (more powerful) form of testosterone, gives men that extra ‘grrrr.’
Crucially, restoring optimal testosterone levels leads to reduced symptoms of depression and reduced stress levels. Studies show that TRT improves mood in both men and women, leading to an improved state of mind and body. With BHRT from Male Excel, patients often report decreased anger and feelings of hostility, more patience, less sadness, reduced fatigue, and nervousness. And most importantly, they report increased energy, motivation, and friendliness!
