Our energy levels drop as we age, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Thanks to treatments such as Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) and nutritional advancements, we can feel just as energised as we did in our twenties and thirties.
Sometimes though low energy is the result of various illnesses such as depression, diabetes or even a lack of exercise. So, it’s important to check overall health before embarking on HRT or TRT. The former is taken by women, usually during the menopause – a time when they can suffer from low energy levels due to a loss of oestrogen and progesterone. Men tend to be the beneficiaries of TRT. Testosterone also depletes with age, although some men have low testosterone levels to begin with.
In the case of an IV drip, this is when vitamins and minerals are administered via a tube directly into the blood stream (usually in the hand). It can take around 30-60 minutes. With nutritional therapy, a qualified nutritionist can test to find out if there are vitamins or minerals that the body is lacking and adjust the diet accordingly. He or she can also test for allergies, which can also be a cause of tiredness and low energy.
