How good will dr.Wilson's product be for mild adrenal fatigue?And how long will I have to take them?
Helpful, it depends: Dr. Wilson has several products; they all look good though i'm most impressed with the herbal adrenal support formula. But taking these alone won't cure it; adrenal fatigue is caused by chronic stress, both physical ; emotional, so a healthy diet, adequate rest, relaxation techniques ; dealing with other issues like food allergies, chronic infections ; hypothyroidism are all important components. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: The adrenal makes cortisol and adrenaline, both of which are stress hormones. People who are stressed out and having trouble coping are sometimes persuaded that it’s the adrenal’s fault. This is usually not true. Poor adrenal function is determined by an acth (cotrosyn) stim test. See an endocrinologist if you have concerns. You don't need a supplement, just healthy living and stress reduction. ...Read more
I'm told i prob have adrenal fatigue, and high impact workouts are no-no's. What are some good low impact exercises to get me in shape safely?

Do a "body sculpting" program of light calisthenics ; weight lifting, using very low resistance(small weights) ; many repetitions, involving the whole-body. This can be accomplished in exercise classes, with exercise machines, or with free weights. See http://bit.Ly/1ere6h for more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Keep a skeptical eye towards anything that sounds too good to be true - including supplements (especially if marketed by the doc). Supplements are largely unregulated - their purity and safety aren't tested. Most are useless. Common sense diet and exercise is best. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Underperformance: This is not a medical term. I think you are probably talking about adrenal insufficiency. This basically means that the adrenal gland is not producing enough of the hormones and chemicals that it should. Reasons include severe life-threatening stress, hemorrhage into the glands, withdrawal from taking other steroids, or tumor infiltration. Fortunately the adrenal hormones can be replaced. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
