Adrenal Fatigue

Understanding Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue is a condition characterized by chronic fatigue, often accompanied by other symptoms such as body aches, low energy levels, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and disrupted sleep patterns. It occurs when the adrenal glands, which are responsible for producing hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, become overworked due to chronic stress or other factors. While not yet recognized as a distinct medical diagnosis by conventional medicine, adrenal fatigue is a term used to describe a cluster of symptoms associated with adrenal dysfunction. 


Some common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include:

Chronic fatigue

Persistent tiredness that doesn’t improve with rest or sleep.

Difficulty concentrating

Trouble focusing or experiencing brain fog, which can impair cognitive function.

Sleep disturbances

Difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up feeling unrested despite adequate sleep duration.

Low energy levels

Feeling constantly tired or lacking in energy, even after periods of rest. 

Body aches

Muscle aches and pains, joint stiffness, and general discomfort throughout the body.

Mood swings

Irritability, anxiety, depression, or mood swings are common with adrenal fatigue.

Decreased immune function

Frequent illnesses, slow recovery from infections, and increased susceptibility to infections.

Digestive issues

Digestive problems such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or food sensitivities.

Cravings for salty or sugary foods

An imbalance in adrenal hormones can lead to cravings for foods high in salt or sugar.

Weight changes

Unexplained weight loss or weight gain, especially around the midsection.

Decreased libido

Loss of interest in sex or decreased sexual desire is often reported by individuals with adrenal fatigue.

Increased sensitivity to stress

Feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with stressors that were previously manageable.
