In brief: No

Adrenal "fatigue" is not a medical diagnosis.
It has been used to describe a set of symtoms that people have, usually unrelated to adrenal function. Testosterone is made by the testicles and to a small degree by the ovaries. There are other, less potent androgens made by the adrenal gland (dhea).
