Adrenal Fatigue (Definition)

Adrenal fatigue is not a recognized diagnosis in science based medicine. Although inconsistent with our understanding of adrenal physiology, the theory is that the adrenal glands "wear out" after a prolonged stress leading to fatigue. 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 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

How do you distinguish the difference between adrenal fatigue, 
hypothyroidism, and perimenopause by symptoms alone?  They all have the same

Your physician can evaluate for the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

Is there a connection between the acid reflux and the adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism?

Is there a connection between the acid reflux and the adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism?

Yes there can be: Acid reflux could be due to inadequate digestion, especially low stomach acid. Stomach cells require energy to make enough stomach acid, and if one is hypothyroid and has adrenal fatigue, the stomach cells may not quite be able to make enough acid. Consider betaine hcl in the middle of the meal as a short term solution. ...Read more

Elevated tsh, normal t4, no hypothyroid symptoms. Have recently quit caffeine / significantly reduced alcohol (in case it's adrenal fatigue). Is this likely to lower tsh? How long to see results?

Elevated tsh, normal t4, no hypothyroid symptoms. Have recently quit caffeine / significantly reduced alcohol (in case it's adrenal fatigue). Is this likely to lower tsh? How long to see results?

No: By definition, elevated TSH is hypothyroidism. T4 is not the active one, rather it is T3 and it is ft3 that is in fact the active hormone. T4 is converted to T3 in the periphery. I would have you check the T3 level and you may need synthroid (thyroxine) as well. Neither alcohol or caffeine has anything to do with the synthesis of TSH but alcohol is converted by body into energy ATP via acetyl coe-a. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism and Adrenal fatigue. I have an extremely swollen   face, hands, feet. I exercise regularly, but feel exhausted and dehydrated.

Hormone issues: I don't fully understand "Adrenal fatigue" Either you are making adrenal hormones or you are not. Your doctor must evaluate this. Also have your doctor check your thyroid level. The swelling suggests fluid retention - discuss this with your doctor! ...Read more

Hypothyroidism (Definition)

The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ located in the front part of the neck. Its role is to make thyroid hormones, which control the way cells use energy. Hyperthyroidism results when the thyroid gland is overactive and too much thyroid hormone is produced, which speeds up metabolism. This results in weight loss, a quick heartbeat, sweating, nervousness, ...Read more
