Fatigue and Tiredness can be due to multiple of causes.

The common ones are Thyroid Deficiency, Low Hemoglobin, Liver related issues.

You must get him evaluated for these disorders. TSH, hemoglobin and Liver Function tests will be necessary.

If the reports are normal, it is unlikely to be related to any medical illness. It might be so that his body is adapted such. He is definitely over weight for his height. That might again lead to fatigue.

He must get into exercise which will help him improve his stamina.

Hope this answers your query.

Thanks and Regards,

Dr Kiran
