Studies increasingly suggest the potential of lifestyle interventions, such as diet, physical activity, stress management and sleep regulation, for the prevention and treatment of fatigue-related conditions. The underlying pathology of chronic fatigue implicates the immune and nervous systems, energy metabolism, inflammation, oxidative stress as well as microbial dysbiosis. Current treatment of mentioned conditions remains challenging due to the diversity of underlying etiologies as well as the various expressed symptoms. However, emerging evidence has highlighted the effectiveness of targeted lifestyle interventions, when implemented with a structured approach, in interventions against fatigue-related conditions, thus demonstrating the potential of lifestyle modification as a management option.
