Adrenal Dysfunction and Adrenal Fatigue

————

So what exactly is adrenal fatigue and adrenal dysfunction?

About the size of a walnut, each of your two adrenal glands sits on top of your kidneys. These tiny but mighty endocrine glands are responsible maintaining homeostasis during stress. The adrenals manufacture and secrete steroid hormones like cortisol, estrogen and testosterone.  They also have important effects on the way you think and feel. Adrenal fatigue and adrenal gland disorders occur when the adrenal glands produce too much or too little of these hormones.

 

The main job of your adrenals is to enable your body to deal with stress.  In the early days, the adrenal hormones would help your body to escape danger or stressors and survive. During those times these stressors were more likely to be fighting a predator or an enemy, enduring long periods of deprivation, or storing up physical reserves when they were available. In modern times, these stressors look much different like family issues, work challenges, financial problems, or lack of sleep. Your body’s response to these stressors is determined by the adrenals and if they are under or over functioning, you’ll feel the effects.

How Is

Adrenal Fatigue Treated?

At The Hormone Center, we begin with a comprehensive questionnaire to help determine the severity of your adrenal fatigue. We also look at the involvement of other endocrine functions like your thyroid and sex hormones. We prescribe thorough saliva and blood testing to get a comprehensive analysis. This helps give us a better understanding of the state of your adrenal fatigue. Our providers will then utilize these results to establish a treatment plan to address any dysfunction or imbalance as well as nutritional deficiencies. Our treatment plans consist of a combination of traditional medicine, integrative medicine, high-quality nutraceuticals, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy through cream, capsules, or pellet therapy.
