Finding the cause of fatigue allows Adaptations Wellness to properly treat it, maximize your quality of life, and reduce the risk of potentially serious medical problems. 

How does my provider diagnose the cause of fatigue?

To diagnose the root cause of fatigue and develop an effective treatment, your provider will discuss lifestyle habits such as alcohol consumption, drug use, sleep habits, and diet.  They ask questions about your medications, personal and family history of disease, and symptoms you may have.

Diagnostic testing may include blood tests, stool tests, urine tests, allergy testing, heart function tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures.

  • Dietary supplements
  • IV vitamin and hydration therapy
