Most of us know that if we don’t get enough sleep, we’re bound to be dragging the next day, but if you’re clocking 8 or 9 hours each night of slumber and still finding yourself dragging day after day, it’s time to consider some other reasons you might be tired all the time.

To find out a little more about what these reasons are and how to find out if they’re affecting you, read my top 7 reasons why most people are so tired all the time and have no idea why.2

1. Hypothyroidism

Low thyroid activity, also known as hypothyroidism, is one of the top things to consider among the reasons you might be tired all the time.

All different types of things can cause hypothyroidism, such as chronic stress, certain food reactions, an autoimmune disorder, a pituitary gland disorder, a disorder of the hypothalamus and even pregnancy, which can cause your thyroid to function poorly.

Your thyroid hormones are known as T3 and T4 and a simple test can indicate whether they are working properly or not, so ask your healthcare provider to test your thyroid if this is a concern.

Typical symptoms include constant fatigue, joint pain, foggy thinking, extreme fatigue after eating certain foods that lower the function of the thyroid, which are known as goitrogenic foods, and depression.

You may need medication, or may find a diet that eliminates goitrogenic foods can help the issue.
