Adrenal Dysfunction

Your adrenal glands play a central role in your endocrine system when it comes to regulating and reacting to your body’s stress levels. When they are functioning properly, you are able to effectively accommodate and react to the day-to-day stresses that you encounter.

However, if your adrenal glands are not functioning properly, it can affect your entire body negatively. Without proper regulation from your endocrine system, you may feel more prone to mood swings when stress levels mount.

Craving salty or sweet foods is not uncommon, as is a decreased ability to cope with stressful situations like you feel you would normally. Additionally, adrenal dysfunction can result in decreased energy, low libido, increased PMS/menopausal symptoms, constipation, a weakened immune system, and not feeling fully rested after a night of sleep.

Many physicians will overlook the adrenal glands and monitoring cortisol levels in favor of other diagnoses. However, at The Functional Perspective, our practitioners expertly-trained to notice signs of adrenal fatigue and will immediately recommend for you an Adrenal Stress Index. This test will monitor your cortisol levels over a 24-hour period and help identify if the symptoms you’re suffering are due to adrenal gland dysfunction.
