Adrenal Fatigue (Definition)

Adrenal fatigue is not a recognized diagnosis in science based medicine.

There is no evidence or reason to believe this occurs. When the adrenals are damaged or fail in conditions such as addison's disease -- ...Read more

I have adrenal fatigue. Dr recommended a series of creams. Are there any alternative treatments?

People who are fatigued, stressed out and having trouble coping are sometimes persuaded that it’s the adrenal’s fault. This is usually not true. Adrenals do not get "fatigued". Poor adrenal function is determined by an acth (cotrosyn) stim test. See an endocrinologist if you have concerns. ...Read more

I am hypothyroid  i also have sympyoms of adrenal fatigue . How is it treated?

Adrenal fatigue: A very low cortisol could be addison’s disease (adrenal failure) but this is relatively rare, although slightly more common with hypothyroid. A “low cortisol” is over-diagnosed; the term “adrenal fatigue” is sometimes used, which is a fake diagnosis. If someone says you have this, see an endocrinologist for confirmation. The symptoms of adrenal fatigue are common to many conditions. ...Read more
