Uninterrupted sleep at night is essential to overcome fatigue.

Overwork and Stress

It is possible that you are experiencing fatigue due to overwork, pressure of meeting deadlines or organizing an event. This results in increased stress.

Sleeping problems

Poor sleeping problems contribute to fatigue. It is essential to get a good night’s sleep to rest the body tissues and muscles. Poor sleep deprives them of rest and you wake up tired the next day. Fatigue could also be a reason for insomnia, sleep apnea and related disorders.

Low blood sugar

High blood sugar is well known to be a medical problem. Low blood sugar indicates the lack of glucose in the body and deprives the body of energy and causes fatigue. Hypoglycemic and diabetic patients are more prone to fatigue.


Anemia indicates low blood cells in the body. People with iron deficiency anemia are more prone to tiredness and fatigue. This is due to the lack of supply of oxygen and nutrients to the body.
