Dear Dr. Roach: My husband is tired all the time. He functions but frequently has to sit to recoup his energy, even after a shower.
He is diabetic and has been for over 10 years. He does not take insulin and manages to keep his A1C within 7.1 to 6.9. He weighs 207 pounds, and hes 6 feet, 1 inch tall and 75 years old.
His bloodwork always comes back normal, and a nuclear stress test came back negative. We have discussed this chronic fatigue with our family doctor. His only explanation is possibly low testosterone (the low end of normal).
