Are you feeling at your fittest, most fabulous best? If you’re not, and you can’t work out why, you could be suffering from a hidden health problem. The human body is a sophisticated, complex machine that requires a variety of nutrients and conditions in order to function at the highest levels. Find out why you might be feeling a little below par, and how to fix yourself at the same time…

Diabetes

This condition is often not identified until you have experienced serious health problems, but what are the warning signs? Here are the key issues to look out for:

  • Visiting the little girls room. A lot.

If you’ve been needing to go to the bathroom for a pee more times than you care to count, you should consider getting checked out.

  • You can’t drink enough.

If you find yourself regularly feeling so thirsty that you feel like you’ve just arrived back from a long spell in the Saharan desert, you might want to visit your doctor.

  •  You’re super tired.

If you have undiagnosed diabetes you will probably feel really tired, no matter how much sleep you have had. Even if your exhaustion isn’t related to this condition, it can be a sign that something else is amiss with your health, so make sure you find out what it is.

Vitamin deficiency

If you’re not getting enough of the vitamins and minerals you need to stay well, you could be feeling quite ill without knowing why. A lack of calcium can cause weak bones and calcium deficiency disease, which will leave you feeling anxious, depressed and having horrible cramping in your legs or arms. To prevent this from happening or from recurring after you’ve got the help you need from a medical professional, try taking a calcium supplement. You can learn about how this works by checking out AlgaeCal customer reviews.

Being anaemic, or lacking in iron, will make you look more pale than usual, and you’ll feel tired and weak. Being deficient in iron can also cause dizziness and a feeling of being generally unwell. You can combat anaemia by increasing your red meat consumption, or by taking iron tablets. Consult your doctor to find out the best option for you.

Depression

Some people are under the illusion that if you are suffering from depression, you’ll know about it. However, if you are feeling tired and lethargic without knowing why, depression is a possible cause. If you usually find it easy to get motivated and enjoy life, and find yourself having difficulty being bothered about even getting up in the morning, you probably need to talk to someone about your mental health. Once you’ve got the medical assistance you need, there are lots of things you can do to help yourself. Try mindfulness, exercise or cognitive behavioural therapy to help you get back on track.

If you’re feeling unwell or run-down but don’t know why, don’t wait to take action. Ask doctors for help, do your research and trust your instincts. If you think there is something wrong, you owe it to yourself to fix it so that you can be fabulous again!
