A good checkup and blood testing would be a good starting point. If you're embarking on a regimen for adrenal fatigue, just make sure the diagnosis is accurate and the work up is complete.

In brief: Feed your adrenals

Cortisol - as are all corticosteroids is derived from cholesterol.
Studies have shown that a high saurated fat, low polyunsaturated fat diet will increase corticosteroid levels. Also supplementation with pregnenolone will increase ability of your adrenals to make cortisol, progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and other corticoids. Reduce all forms of stress. Get sleep and sunlight.
