How do you diagnose adrenal fatigue?

Diagnosing adrenal fatigue isn’t as simple as having a quick blood test and getting a yes or no answer. In fact most doctors have no idea about adrenal fatigue and don’t actually believe that the condition exists! However, in the same way that type 2 diabetes doesn’t just “appear”‘ overnight with is a measurable deterioration in the ability of insulin to do its job over time – the adrenals also come with their own warning system that things are heading downhill.

Some of the symptoms that a person would experience in adrenal fatigue are:

  • fatigue, unrefreshed upon waking
  • fatigue that is worse for exercise
  • anxiety, overwhelm, dread and even panic attacks
  • low blood pressure, dizziness on standing up quickly
  • salt cravings
  • insomnia
  • allergies and sensitivities
  • depression
  • brain fog, confusion, memory loss
  • dark circles under the eyes
  • inflammatory conditions
  • sensitivity to light and noise
