Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms

In past posts I have talked about adrenal fatigue, something that often comes hand in hand with thyroid problems, as they’re all part of the endocrine system. 

You can determine if you have adrenal problems by completing a 24 h940824_10209343858380586_8459870097140306746_nour saliva cortisol test, that tests your adrenal function at four key points of the day. Most doctors will only do one-time blood or urine tests for cortisol output, which are not accurate.

Do you experience any of the following: Continue reading “Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms”
