Health Regimen for a 29-Year-Old Female Diagnosed With Adrenal Fatigue

Health Regimen for a 29-Year-Old Female Diagnosed With Adrenal Fatigue

Ratings: (0)|Views: 5 |Likes:
A 29-year-old female presented with weight gain, salt craving, severe constipation, and mild hypotension. After a 4-point salivary cortisol assay, thyroid panel, fasting insulin and blood sugar, iron panel, and blood chemistries, she was diagnosed with very low salivary cortisol (adrenal fatigue), and subclinical hypothyroidism. After beginning an intervention plan that included adrenal support formula with B vitamins and adrenal gland extract, adrenal botanical formula, vitamin C, multivitamin mineral formula, fiber, dietary changes with elimination of dairy and reduction in simple carbohydrates, and stress reduction techniques, she showed improved energy and weight loss.
While there are numerous etiologies of fatigue that must be ruled out, adrenal fatigue is a likely finding in many individuals, particularly if prolonged stress is a significant historical component. Hypothyroidism and dysinsulinemia may accompany adrenal fatigue. Using salivary cortisol testing with quintile ranking and multiple collections, the sensitivity to identify subtle perturbations in circadian release are possible. Formal, well-designed trials evaluating adrenal fatigue may allow for broader recognition within the health care community.
