Adrenal Cortisol

Adrenal & Cortisol




Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue is a common topic of discussion on various internet forums, and is one of the many medical controversies. Those who believe they have a thyroid disorder but have not revealed one upon testing thyroid function, may consider next that the adrenal glands are at fault.Generally, conventional physicians are sceptical - whereas many unorthodox or alternative practitioners believe in its existence. The hypothesis is that the adrenal glands, responsible for the production of essential hormones such as cortisol are sensitive to stress - particularly when it is prolonged or intense in nature - and respond by underperforming. Acute severe illness - such as pneumonia - is also believed by proponents to be a trigger for Adrenal Fatigue.

Adrenal Gland Disorders

Adrenal gland disorders are recognised by all clinicians, and there is plenty of information in the medical literature about Addison's disease (failure of the adrenal gland to produce enough cortisol) and Cushing's disease (production of too much cortisol), for example. Testing of cortisol levels can point to such diagnoses. The argument really is whether a lower grade problem does truly exist, or whether the symptoms ascribed to adrenal fatigue could just be symptoms of fatigue in general, or of recovery from acute illness or indeed of a depressive illness. Testing has always been difficult, particularly in less clear cut cases, because the levels of cortisol tend to fluctuate by day, and between individuals. At Blue Horizon, we like to keep an open mind - our view is that probably all systems of the body are capable of underperformance as well as complete failure. Historically though, testing of blood to prove underperformance can be difficult. Testing cortisol at 9am is traditionally thought to give the best snapshot view but now the advent of six times salivary cortisol readings throughout the day increases the chance of detecting a deficiency in adrenal activity. Further testing could then be guided by this baseline knowledge.
