In brief: Contributing factor
Adrenal fatigue is caused by chronic stress, both physiological and emotional.
Untreated (or under-treated) hypothyroidism can place additional stress on the adrenals, contributing to adrenal fatigue. For a couple of perspectives on this from thyroid experts see http://www.Stopthethyroidmadness.Com/adrenal-info/ and http://thyroid.About.Com/od/drsrichkarileeshames/a/thyroidadrenal.Htm.
