Adrenal dysfunction syndrome, also referred to as adrenal exhaustion or adrenal fatigue, is one of the most undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and mistreated health problems. Laboratory testing is the only way to scientifically determine how well the adrenal glands are performing. When we talk about adrenal dsyfunction we are really talking about the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, both the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland are in your brain, this is why this is really important.
The degree of adrenal dysfunction severity ranges from mild dysfunction to total failure of the adrenal glands (known as Addison’s disease). Because the adrenal glands are responsible for so many critical functions, even a minor impairment in their function can have a negative impact on the entire body. A chronic disruption—one that persists over time—of normal adrenal function can undermine immunity and metabolism, leading to mild to debilitating health conditions.
Some of the most common symptoms of adrenal stress are: Fatigue, brain fog, depression, sweet cravings, decreased sex drive, insomnia, poor memory, anxiety, premenstrual syndrome, weakened immune response, recurrent infections, unexplained nervousness or irritability, inability to lose or gain weight, and joint or muscle pain.
Once we have the results we will go over them together so I can explain the results and offer nutrient options and recommend lifestyle changes.
