Tired Teens

If your teen has been struggling with fatigue and lack of energy for months, you know it can be miserable.And discouraging. Some causes of excessive tiredness like lack of sleep and improper sleep hygiene, can be easy to remedy. However, other causes, like digestive problems, hormonal changes, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), may require more serious care.

Tired Teens explains how to identify the warning signs and symptoms of chronic fatigue. Tired Teens will also provide you with expert advice on receiving an evaluation and a diagnosis for adolescent fatigue and outlines different treatment plans to those diagnosed with chronic fatigue and POTS.

In Dr. Fischer's careful and compassionate words, you'll find hope for true healing and the potential for a complete and lasting recovery.
