Health Tip: Fatigue in Older Adults

(HealthDay News) -- For older adults, being tired here and there may be common, says the National Institute on Aging. Illness, medication, emotional distress, poor sleep habits, alcohol and junk food are some of the many possible causes of fatigue.

To feel less tired, the agency suggests that older adults:

  • Keep a fatigue diary to find patterns.
  • Exercise moderately and regularly.
  • Avoid naps of more than 30 minutes.
  • Ask for help if you feel swamped.
  • Stop smoking.

If you feel tired for several weeks with no relief, contact your doctor.
