Herb Adrenal Exhaustion
Many can help: The medical profession recognizes addison's disease, an extreme form of low adrenal function. However, only 1 in 10-25, 000 people have severe enough adrenal problems to qualify for addison's, but many millions have lesser yet very significant degrees of poor adrenal function. See http://www.Adrenalfatigue.Org/ and the book adrenal fatigue by dr. James wilson. See my comments for more information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No such thing: Hi. That is a ridiculous, anti-scientific self diagnosis with absolutely NO validity. Take any herbs you want as long as they do no harm...you're treating nothing with nothing, and the snake oil salesperson who sold that BS to you is laughing all the way to the bank! That nonsense is for the worried well who obsess about nonexistent health concerns. Good luck! ...Read more

Symptoms in medicine: Hi. "Adrenal fatigue" is not a real entity - no such thing. Here's a very well time tested and proven philosophy of medicine: there is no symptom specific to any single disease, and no disease specific to any single symptom. Whatever symptoms your son has may be due to a disease, or associated with no disease. But at least stick to the realm of real conditions. Good luck to him! ...Read more
Exhaustion: The simple answer is yes. Why have you been taking cortisone long-term? Were you ill at the beginning and feel much better over time? The adrenal is probably not working well enough such that you must continue with cortisone. If you have not seen an endocrinologist about this you should do so sometime soon. ...Read more
I'm just wondering, if you have adrenal exhaustion from coffee, will stopping drinking it rectify the problem?
No: Adrenal fatigue is a real problem and there is a large population of patients who have this problem. Caffeine stopping may help but caffeine is not the main problem. We are exposed to chronic stresses & poor nutrition which results in excess cortisol production from adrenal glands which eventually get "tired" and cannot produce adequate cortisol resulting in symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

See endocrinologist: 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, not by simply measuring a random blood/saliva level. See an endocrinologist if you have concerns. ...Read more
Adrenal Fatigue: Adrenal fatigue often leads to chronic fatigue syndrome, so it is very important to treat it. The most important treatment is lifestyle. Specifically, avoid overuse of stimulants since that puts more strain on the adrenals, increase your vitamin C, decrease your stress level, avoid overexercising, go to bed at a consistent time, maintain steady blood sugar, and consider using adaptogens. ...Read more
