What Is Adrenal Fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue occurs when our adrenal glands are unable to produce adequate quantities of hormones. The reduced number of hormones can affect every part of the body. Adrenal fatigue, like all conditions, affects everyone differently. Moreover, adrenal fatigue also impacts many parts of the body differently. The diverse range of symptoms of adrenal fatigue make it difficult to diagnose, especially since all systems affected by adrenal fatigue are so interconnected.
What Are the Most Common Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms in Women?
Female adrenal fatigue symptoms can present differently from person to person. However, some of the most common symptoms include extreme difficulty waking up in the morning, high levels of exhaustion throughout the day, a very low tolerance for any stress, uncontrollable cravings for salty foods, and a weakened immune system. BioTE® Medical’s method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may be able to help relieve female adrenal fatigue symptoms.
What Are Other Common Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms in Women?
Anxiousness, low sex drive, weight gain, poor circulation, low mood, dark circles under the eyes, respiratory complaints, and low blood pressure can all be symptoms of adrenal fatigue in women.
What Are Some of the Causes of Adrenal Fatigue?
One of the major causes of adrenal fatigue symptoms in women is getting an insufficient amount of sleep for an extended period. In the early stages of adrenal fatigue, sufferers are under an intense amount of stress, which causes their cortisol and other hormonal cycles to be interrupted. However, in the later stages of adrenal fatigue, adrenals become incapacitated by stress and fail to provide adequate quantities of cortisol.
