Poor adrenal function is something we discuss frequently because it can have a big impact on overall health and well-being, and it is also one of the most common undiagnosed medical issues. Poor adrenal function can be hard to diagnose because it shares symptoms with many other medical conditions, but it is important to know the symptoms. In this article we’ll discuss some of the common signs of adrenal insufficiency, things like:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Muscle Weakness
- Changes in Appetite
- Weight Loss
- Digestive Issues
- Low Blood Pressure
- Dizziness or Fainting
- Mood Changes
- Cravings for Salty Foods
- Low Blood Sugar
- Trouble Sleeping, which leads to always feeling tired
- Sweating and night-sweating
- Missed Menstrual or Irregular Periods
- Low Libido
There are some things you can do to help ensure your adrenals have the right nutrients to help them function correctly. This includes getting at least eight hours of sleep per night, drinking plenty of filtered water each day, and eating a diet high in organic fruits and vegetables. You should also avoid processed food and excessive amounts of sugar, and try supplementing with herbs and vitamins that may help regulate adrenal function.
