Adrenal Fatigue consists of many nonspecific but debilitating symptoms. However, most conventional physicians are not taught about Adrenal Fatigue in medical school. As such, they are not prepared to take Adrenal Fatigue as a serious threat to health.
Both too high and too low night time cortisol levels can cause sleep disturbances. The body lacks the nutrients needed by the adrenals to keep blood sugar high during the night. When this happens, blood sugar levels may sometimes fall so low that hypoglycemic symptoms disrupt sleep during the night.
IRRITABILITY & FATIGUE
When your adrenals are weak, the body may be unable to handle normal emotional and physical demands of daily living. The body has to draw on its internal reserves, and this may lead to depletion and thus a sense of low fatigue and irritability.
During adrenal fatigue, it is very hard to lose weight or it’s easy to gain weight around your mid-section. Your body does not want to lose weight as a way to conserve energy and your body may develop metabolic syndrome due to the constant high cortisol level in the initial stages of adrenal fatigue.
LOW IMMUNE SYSTEM
When the immune system comes under attack. The body’s response is to produce cortisol, a strong immune system modulator. The weaker the adrenals, the more susceptible the immune system becomes and the more inflamed the body becomes.
