None: The medical causes of 'fatigue' have been ruled out. There are no more tests. If this child is not obese and is not drinking energy drinks or lots of caffeine or other stimulants then this may be their norm during a time of significant growth or hormone changes and one should just watch and observe. The other issue that is not addressed yet is mental health and possible depression.

I would also add that inadequate sleep can lead to daytime fatigue. It is an often overlooked issues. Does your child snore? Is she a restless sleeper? Is she difficult to awaken in the morning? These are signs of a sleep disturbance and should be addressed.
