The fundamental issue for men with Energy PFPs is increasing their energy reserves. We all experience fluctuations in energy levels, but Energy PFP men are generally less energetic than most of their friends and colleagues.
The tiredness may be relatively recent or something they’ve had since childhood. Energy powers muscles, and it’s crucial for sperm development and sexual vigour. Energy levels at the time of sperm production affect their health, especially the DNA they carry.
The constitution we inherited from our parents is the basis for our energy levels. Still, as we age, this basic constitution is affected by our diet, lifestyle and life events, which combine to determine the energy reserves available for fertility.
There are two variations to the Energy PFP, which relate to how and when their energy reserves became low, and we’re calling these “Constitutional” and “Gut”.
Our constitutional health is primarily the genetic packages we inherited from our parents, with the genes on our chromosomes determining much about us. We all have genetic traits that affect our metabolism, blood function and energy levels.
However, genes aren’t 100% stable, and their behaviour (and structure) changes in response to age, diet and the environment:
Gut Energy covers most of the other ways we become tired, with weak digestion being the usual cause, although overwork, trauma and stress are other factors. The classic signs of gut Energy are cravings for sweet or stodgy food and energy dips around mealtimes.
Blood sugar levels are central to this, and the release of insulin and glucagon from the pancreas controls them. The pancreas also releases many of the enzymes that digest food. The pancreas is a crucial organ for digestion and blood sugar control, and poor pancreatic function causes hypoglycaemia and Type II diabetes.
Gut Energy isn’t the same as diabetes, but we’ll use diabetes to illustrate the point. Diabetes has become so widespread (and generally well controlled) that we’ve almost forgotten its seriousness. Without medication, some of the symptoms are:
|Low Blood Sugar||High Blood Sugar|
|Tired, lightheaded, dizzy and weak||Extreme tiredness and thirst|
|Sudden extreme hunger||Sudden extreme hunger|
|Racing heart rate||Rapid weight loss|
|Irritable, anxious or confused||Irritable, anxious or confused|
|Loss of consciousness, seizures||Kidney failure, impotence|
In the US, 34.2 million people had diabetes in 2018 (10.4% of the population) . Of those, 90% of cases are diet-related (Type II), as Type I is an auto-immune condition. The US spent $327 billion on diabetes care that year, but despite this, 50% of people with diabetes die prematurely. 
The gut has intricate relationships with:
Energy PFP Men and Male Fertility
Energy is crucial for the healthy balance of the immune and nervous systems. Without a reliable energy supply, cells in the testes cannot make healthy sperm with the mitochondria and fuel supply to reach eggs and fertilise them.
Fluctuating or low energy supply creates hormonal imbalances and inflammation that lower male fertility and sexual vitality. Erectile function is much lower for men with diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which involve high insulin levels due to poor gut health and pancreatic function.
Men with Energy PFPs should focus on supporting their digestive and constitutional health to improve sperm DNA integrity and the chances of healthy pregnancies.
