Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue

Do you feel tired and rundown even after plenty of sleep? Do you have trouble bouncing back after stress or illness? Do you crave salty snacks? These are all symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue. Although it’s estimated that up to 80% of adult Americans suffer some level of Adrenal Fatigue during their life, it remains one of the most under-diagnosed illnesses in the U.S. I know that many of you are suffering from Adrenal Fatigue and are not even aware of it.

Adrenal Fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, known as a syndrome, that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis, or pneumonia. As the name suggests, its paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved with sleep but it is not a readily identifiable entity like measles or a growth on the end of your finger.

Even if you have Adrenal Fatigue, you can look and act relatively normal and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness. Yet you live with a general sense of unwellness, tiredness, or “gray” feelings. People experiencing Adrenal Fatigue often have to use coffee, colas, and other stimulants to get going in the morning and to prop themselves up during the day.

Adrenal fatigue can wreak havoc with your life. In the more serious cases, the activity of the adrenal gland is so diminished that you may have difficulty getting out of bed for more than a few hours a day. With each increment of reduction in adrenal function, every organ and system in your body is more profoundly affected. Changes occur in your carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism; fluid and electrolyte balance; heart and cardiovascular system; and even sex drive. Many other alterations take place at the biochemical and cellular levels in response to and to compensate for the decrease in adrenal hormones that occurs with adrenal fatigue. Your body does its best to make up for under-functioning adrenal glands, but it does so at a price.
