Adrenal Fatigue Q & A
What is adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue is a group of symptoms that can indicate dysfunction in your adrenal glands. These glands are responsible for producing hormones that are vital for sustaining life.
When your adrenal glands become overstressed, you may experience a variety of symptoms that interfere with your life. Many of these symptoms are common with other medical conditions, making it difficult to understand the root cause of your issues.
While adrenal fatigue isn’t a medical diagnosis, it may be a mild form of adrenal insufficiency, a condition where you can’t produce enough hormones to function optimally.
Common signs of adrenal fatigue include:
- Body aches
- Persistent fatigue
- Skin discoloration
- Low blood pressure
- Unexplained weight loss
For some people, the difficulties in identifying adrenal fatigue has left them without help or options for treatment. Dr. Plateroti specializes in treating adrenal fatigue symptoms and providing a solution to your discomfort.
Who is at risk for adrenal disease?
While adrenal fatigue can affect men and women, certain factors may increase your risk for adrenal issues.
Because stress is the primary cause of adrenal fatigue, people who work stressful jobs or otherwise are under constant stress may be most at risk.
How is adrenal fatigue diagnosed?
Dr. Plateroti may take samples of your blood, saliva or urine to test for signs of adrenal fatigue. These tests can also help rule out other underlying medical conditions that may be causing your symptoms.
Dr. Plateroti also reviews your medical history and performs a comprehensive physical exam during your visit to identify other abnormalities that may be responsible for your symptoms.
What treatment options are available for adrenal fatigue?
Dr. Plateroti may suggest lifestyle changes to resolve your symptoms naturally. Primary recommendations for addressing adrenal fatigue include stress management techniques and eating a healthy diet that’s low in carbohydrates. Regular physical activity that includes stress relief exercises, such as yoga or meditation, are also important factors in improving your overall health.
