What Causes Poor Stamina?

Poor stamina can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'troubling' to 'very serious'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • learn what you should be doing right now
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose poor stamina, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "poor stamina" as a symptom.  Here are eight of many possibilities (more below):
  • Low Progesterone
  • Stress
  • Iron Deficiency Anemia
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Low HGH
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Candida / Yeast

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
high cigarette smoke sensitivity
deformed toenails
high iodine consumption
premenstrual weight gain
inner trembling
acne worse during period
having hot flashes
possibly jaundiced skin
history of cortisol use
adverse reaction to stress
excessive thirst
history of candidiasis
... and more than 210 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of poor stamina:
Cause Probability Status
Low HGH 93% Confirm
Hypothyroidism 29% Unlikely
Adrenal Fatigue 24% Unlikely
Iron Deficiency Anemia 5% Ruled out
Candida / Yeast 3% Ruled out
Hypoglycemia 3% Ruled out
Stress 2% Ruled out
Low Progesterone 2% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Metabolic Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about energy/stamina:
How would you rate your physical stamina (ability to undertake prolonged exercise)?
Possible responses:
→ I have poor endurance
→ I'm about average / don't know
→ I have strong endurance
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either low energy/stamina or high energy/stamina, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Phosphorus Deficiency

Sodium phosphate or potassium phosphate is often used by endurance athletes in order to increase aerobic capacity and athletic performance.  Phosphates reduce the effects of lactic acid build-up in the muscles; they help make oxygen delivery to the muscles more efficient; they are used in the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (the chemical form of energy within cells) and Creatine Phosphate (an immediate energy store) and therefore are believed to increase the chemical energy stored within cells.
