ADRENAL FATIGUE

Adrenal fatigue, also known as adrenal exhaustion or hypoadrenia, is one of the most under diagnosed illnesses in western society. It has been estimated that 80% of adults suffer from adrenal fatigue to some degree. Adrenal fatigue is a decline in adrenal gland function ultimately resulting in diminished production of adrenal hormones which adversely affects your physiology causing exhaustion, etc.

Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

The most common signs of adrenal fatigue include: continued fatigue, exhaustion, trouble sleeping, trouble getting out of bed, depression, anxiety, sugar and/or salt cravings, weight gain and inability to lose weight, increased effort to do everyday tasks, decreased sex drive, decreased ability to handle stress, light headed when standing up, low body temperature, more prone to colds and flu and less tolerance to stress.

Related Conditions

There are a number of conditions that stand out as having an adrenal component which include: chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, ischemic heart disease, chronic and recurrent infections, rheumatoid arthritis.

Therapeutic Approach

The adrenal glands, as all glands, are crucial to health. The complex regulation of their function via the ACTH axis and hormonal feedback means that it is really difficult to achieve the desired result by simply providing additional DHEA to the body, although in some cases this is justified. DHEA formulations are available on prescription, please contact us for more information.

The best approach is to refer to a medical doctor for possible tests and diagnosis and then use the supplements they recommend.
