What Is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a common term for a condition officially called HPA Axis Dysfunction. It refers to the response of the adrenal glands to chronic stress.

Initially, when the adrenals respond to stress, the level of the hormone Cortisol rises to adapt to the problem at hand. However, with prolonged stress, Cortisol may remain too high for too long. This can result in “adrenal fatigue,” when the adrenal glands lose their capacity to respond to stress and become “burned out.”

What causes adrenal fatigue?

There are four main causes of adrenal fatigue:

  • Not sleeping enough, or irregular sleep patterns
  • Emotional stressors (chronic pain, overwork, illness, emotional trauma)
  • Inflammation (from food allergies, inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis etc.)
  • Blood sugar extremes (from eating sweets and junk food)

People at risk for adrenal fatigue include:

  • Busy new parents
  • Students in college or grad school
  • Caregivers, such as those caring for aging family members.
  • Cronic pain sufferers
  • People experiencing ongoing emotional trauma such as PTSD or abuse

The relationship between menopause and adrenal fatigue

Women entering menopause, who are depleted from years of stress, are at especially high risk for adrenal fatigue.

The adrenal hormones and the sex hormones work together to keep the body in balance. If the body is under an excess of stress, the adrenals need more building blocks to make more cortisol. They do this by “stealing” the sex hormones, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA. In menopause, these levels are already dropping, and the adrenals often times cannot keep up production of cortisol. This is when many women experience extreme symptoms and can become “burned out.”

This change can be dramatic with many symptoms that affect the quality of life. Your energy, vitality and sexual function can be maintained or revived with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that exactly match the chemicals in your own body. Because they are “bioidentical” they are safer, more effective, and have fewer side effects.

Hormone replacement therapy or HRT will replace declining hormones, bring your body back into balance, and return your body to optimal health. You can feel like yourself again!
