Adrenal Glands

Illu_adrenal_glandMederi Health frequently sees patients with health problems relating to their adrenal glands. Adrenal glands are small, star shaped endocrine glands that sit on top of the kidneys. They are chiefly responsible for regulating the body’s response to stress. The adrenal glands are divided into three zones, or layers. These different layers have multiple physiological responsibilities, such as blood sugar management, stress and anxiety responses, blood pressure regulation, energy management, sex hormone production, and immune responses.

Unhealthy adrenal glands cause the whole body to suffer

When adrenal glands fail to properly function, you can suffer from a condition known as adrenal fatigue, or adrenal exhaustion. Adrenal fatigue develops over time, and can leave your glands unable to meet your body’s hormone needs. Some of the symptoms you may experience include:

  • General lack of energy, especially in the morning or late afternoon
  • Exhaustion, even with simple daily tasks
  • A decrease in your ability to handle stress or emotional resiliency
  • Craving sugar and/or salt
  • Increased abdominal fat that you cannot lose from diet and/or exercise changes
  • Reduction of symptoms after eating
  • Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Waking up tired after 6 or more hours on sleep

Mederi Health provides the thorough evaluation you need

It is very important to have your physiology properly evaluated, as adrenal fatigue symptoms can range from abdominal weight gain, diabetes, hypoglycemia, fatigue, salt cravings, and hormone imbalances.  Using state-of-the-art saliva test kits, our team takes four independent readings during a 12-hour waking period to properly evaluate the hormone production of your adrenal glands. Using this data, our health experts then determine the proper course of treatment needed for each patient.
