The adrenal glands are of high importance for the entire body. These small layered glands reside on top of your kidneys. In fact, they are important for healthy kidney function and the production of hormones - particularly stress hormones and sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone).
The adrenal glands release several hormones, like steroids and adrenaline. These hormones improve the metabolic rate, strengthen the immunity, and regulate blood pressure. They also help the body to manage stress, so problems with their release lead to numerous health issues.
Adrenal fatigue leads to lower levels of a number of hormones that can affect every single part of your body. Left unattended, adrenal fatigue can lead to adrenal insufficiency.
Some of the signs of adrenal fatigue include:Hair lossPoor sleepBrittle nails and/or dry skinChronic body and emotional fatigueBrain fog and memory lossBody aches or chronic muscle painAnxiety and depressionBlurry visionHeart palpitationsHypoglycemiaIrritabilityLethargyLow blood pressureLow sex driveMuscle weaknessThyroid problemsUterine fibroidsUnexplained weight loss or gain
