What is adrenal fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a term used in functional medicine to describe a collection of signs and symptoms that indicate your adrenal glands, hypothalamus and pituitary gland are not functioning properly, which can be triggered by various stressors and infection.

What are the symptoms of adrenal fatigue?

Some common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include the following:

  • Fatigue
  • Body aches
  • Digestive problems often leading to weight loss
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Low blood pressure
  • Low sex drive
  • Cravings for sweet or salty snacks

What causes adrenal fatigue?

The adrenal glands sit on top of your kidneys and produce a variety of very important hormones, such as cortisol, the "stress" hormone, that helps regulate your immune system, blood sugar and metabolism. When experiencing chronic bouts of prolonged stress, the adrenal glands will continue to make cortisol at the expense of the other hormones (estrogen, progesterone and testosterone). This can lead to adrenal fatigue.
