Doctor Mashkova called morning weakness a sign of diabetes and hypothyroidism

According to endocrinologist Anna Mashkova, a feeling of morning weakness may indicate the development of serious diseases. These are diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism and anemia.

Patients complain of drowsiness and decreased performance during the day. Contact your endocrinologist if these symptoms persist for a long time.

One of the diseases that may be accompanied by morning fatigue is diabetes. Another endocrine disease is primary hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism is a disease of the thyroid gland caused by its reduced function.

“The disease is characterized by complaints of apathy, general weakness, decreased physical endurance, swelling of the face in the area around the eyes (myxedema), hair loss on the head and eyebrows, brittle nails, menstrual irregularities, low temperature intolerance,” the doctor noted “Gazeta.Ru”.

Also, weakness in the morning is characteristic of anemia. People complain of fatigue, dizziness, headaches, decreased concentration, pallor, poor tolerance to physical activity.

Let us recall the symptoms of type 2 diabetes:

1. Frequent urination, especially at night.

2. Constant thirst.

3. Fatigue and weakness. Impaired processing of sugar in the body can lead to poor energy and cause feelings of fatigue and weakness.

4. Increased appetite, constant feeling of hunger.

5. Slow healing of wounds.

6. Uncontrolled diabetes can cause vision problems, such as blurred or decreased visual acuity.

What other reasons can cause morning weakness?

  • Lack of sleep. Insufficient sleep can be caused by stress, insomnia, or poor daily routine.
  • Low blood sugar. If you haven't eaten enough before bed or skipped breakfast, your blood sugar may be low, causing weakness and dizziness in the morning.
  • Depression, anxiety. Psychological problems affect the quality of sleep.
  • Lack of physical activity leads to weakened muscles and decreased energy.
  • Poor nutrition. Not getting enough nutrients in your diet or skipping meals before bed can lead to feeling weak and tired in the morning.
