Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms

80 % of American women will suffer from adrenal fatigue.

What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Why Am I So Tired?


1.  What is Adrenal Fatigue? Adrenal fatigue is a condition in which the adrenal glands function at a sub-optimal level when patients are at rest, under stress, or in response to consistent, intermittent, or sporadic demands. The adrenal glands are two small glands that sit over the kidneys and are responsible for secreting over 50 different hormones—including epinephrine, cortisol, progesterone, DHEA, estrogen, and testosterone. Over the past century, adrenal fatigue has been recognized as Non-Addison’s hypoadrenia, subclinical hypoadrenia, neurasthenia, adrenal neurasthenia, and adrenal apathy.

2.  What causes the Fatigue? Generally patients who present with adrenal fatigue can often be heard saying, "After______, I was never the same."

The onset of AF often occurs because of financial pressures, infections, emotional stress such as divorce, miscarriage, death of a loved one, bankruptcy, unemployment.  We'll be talking about this at our Talk With A Doc LIVE!

What has been your "trigger" event? Do you know?

Other factors include "bad health habits" such as poor dietary habits - skipping breakfast, feast or famine; heavy caffeine or other stimulant intake (like sodas); smoking, drugs, sugar and white flour products and lack of exercise. Then there are "bad emotional habits" such as long-standing smoldering resentments and angers; perfectionism; work holism, co-dependency and other control issues.

What are your poor health and emotional habits?

After experiencing many of these events and habits over a long period of time, the adrenal glands tend to produce less cortisol, the body’s master stress hormone. Cortisol’s main role in the body is to enable us to handle stress and maintain our immune systems. The adrenal gland’s struggle to meet the high demands of cortisol production eventually leads to adrenal fatigue.

4.  What tests should I have done to confirm or deny that I have AF?
Although there no specific tests that will provide a true diagnosis
of adrenal fatigue there are tests that may contribute to an assessment, such as a postural hypotension test, an AM cortisol test, or an ACTH stimulation test. It is customary for a physician to assess the adrenals together with thyroid tests to rule out insufficiency, which sometimes occurs in long-standing hypothyroidism.

5.  What should I do to recover and get my energy back? Simplify, modify, minimize.

Laugh more often (increases the parasympathetic supply to the adrenals), small breaks to lie down, increased relaxation, regular meals, low stress
exercise such as a brisk walk, stretching and ______. Do one-thing-at-a-time.
Stop being Super Man or Super Woman i.e. give "multi-tasking" an extended leave of absence from your life. Get to bed early and whenever possible sleep in until at least
9 AM - even if you are a "morning person." Eliminate clutter and do it one file, one drawer, one room at a time. Take life one day at a time - just for today.

6.  Should I still exercise or should I just take it easy?

As far as exercise is concerned, never underestimate the power of a 30 minute walk. Your body needs time to detox and that cannot be achieved by power lifting at the gym. Strenuous exercise during adrenal fatigue only exacerbates the problem because your body excretes lactic acid. That's why it is so important to drink filtered water after a good workout, as you need to flush the toxins from the body.

I personally would recommend a good, brisk 30-minute walk each day.
