I have much less energy and a slower metabolism recently, what's the best way to determine whether it's aging vs. Something else?

In brief: Aging vs ???

See your fp for a thorough history & physical, including basic lab work like CBC w/ differential, chemistry, lipid profile, thyroid function.
History is important since it will guide doc towards what other studies to order. Be sure to take (list of) all meds & supplements you're taking.
