Effects Of Adrenal Fatigue
Multiple effects: A truly non-functioning thyroid with almost no thyroid hormone synthesis will show many symptoms: most commonly dry hair/nails/skin, mental slowing, loss of eyebrows, weight gain, heart slowing, constipation, menstrual/sexual dysfunction, swelling, et al. This definitely requires thyroid replacement. However, the most commonly seen mild hypothyroidism (tsh 4-10) usually has very few effects seen. ...Read more
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

Osteoporosis: If an adenoma on the gland develops (usually only in one of the four), there is excess absorption and mobilization of calcium, which can result in enough loss of bone to risk fragility. If there is inadequate hormone, the opposite happens and low blood calcium can result in muscle contraction issues. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Liothyronine is T3 (liothyronine): Liothyronine is the generic name for tri-iodothyronine, (t3 (liothyronine)). It is considered the active form of thyroid hormone, although all cells can convert T4 (the predominant product of the thyroid gland) into t3 (liothyronine). Can be used to replace thyroid hormone, but it is short-lived. This means it must be taken multple times a day, and gives levels which are constantly going up and down (not ideal, hard to adjust). ...Read more
In context of cryofibrinogenemia, lupus-type ctd and adrenal insufficiency, what could cause increase in GI symptoms, nausea, and vomiting with adrenal crisis, when estrogen/progestin drugs are taken?
Cortisol deficiency : With true adrenal insufficiency diagnosed by an endocrinologist, one would need to be taking cortisol replacement therapy. Nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting and weight loss are classic symptoms of adrenal insufficiency which estrogen and Progesterone replacement don't address. Many with primary adrenal insufficiency also look like they have a deep tan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can low dose of amitriptyline take away symptoms of celiac disease? Specifically, chronic diarrhea and lack of appetite?
Combating symptoms: Amitriptylene has anticholinergic and antihistaminic side effects that can slow the bowel and increase appetite. In this way it can counteract some of the symptoms you're having (the chronic diarrhea and poor appetite). You'll need to work with your doctor to arrive at a dose that works well for you, balancing out these processes in a positive way. You'll still need to avoid gluten. ...Read more
Found "reduced adrenal function" as a side effect of advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone).Is it same as adrenal fatigue;does it mean acceptance of "adrenal fatigue" concept?
Corticosteroids: The adrenal glands produce corticosteroids, as commanded by the pituitary gland.When taking a corticosteroid med, the pituitary detects the high level & reduces the signal to the adrenals.After taking corticosteroids long enough, it takes time to ramp up corticosteroid production again, leading to adrenal insufficiency if the corticosteroid med is suddenly stopped. This is not "adrenal fatigue." ...Read more

Can adrenal fatigue cause low grade fever? Are progesterone and estrogen levels related to adrenalin and cortisol?
Dubious diagnosis: "adrenal fatigue" is a pop diagnosis, not an evidence-based one. Since true addison[s isn't a febrile illness, this isn't either. I've wondered if the "subclinical addison's" claims might have something to them, but would urge you not to self-diagnose. The danger of self-diagnosis / treatment is missing another real emotional, situational or physical problem. Your doctor should work your temp up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: However, there are many other causes of these symptoms so you would need testing to find out if it is your adrenals. 'adrenal fatigue' is not generally recognized by mainstream medicine and, i believe, is a real condition that unlike addison's disease, is not life threatening but can cause symptoms that can be very distressing. You would need to see an integrative or naturopathic physician. ...Read more
