Can adrenal fatigue cause low grade fever? Are progesterone and estrogen levels related to adrenalin and cortisol?

It is though in chronic stress this feedback mechanism breaks down. ...Read more

In what cases do counterregulatory hormones for low blood sugar level cause chronic fight-or-flight response?
Yes.: Testosterone levels are directly correlated with the production of body oils, ie. Sebum. This is the substance that leaves "fingerprints." did you know that babies leave virtually no fingerprints, and a man's will last longer on a surface than a female?
