What is adrenal fatigue? Adrenal fatigue is the low output of cortisol most likely caused by intense or prolonged stressors on the body. Common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include chronic fatigue, depression, chronic infections, hypoglycemia, insomnia, and weight changes. Adrenal fatigue is often related to autoimmune and thyroid problems.

4 Samples of Cortisol Levels throughout day reveal imbalance in the stress response of the body. Normal cortisol should rise in the mornings and taper off at night, also helping to regulate normal sleep and wake cycles. Adrenal hormones also affect the immune system and appropriate responses to inflammatory disorders.
Adrenal Testing also evaluates DHEA, which is a precursor to other sex hormones in the body, impacting lean body mass, energy, libido, and memory.
