You May Be Suffering from Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal fatigue happens when there is an overstimulation of the adrenal glands. This leads to issues with hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and the hormones that originate in the thyroid. Changes in these hormones can cause the symptoms listed above and are often hard to diagnose. You may have been to the doctor and complained of tiredness, poor concentration, low-sex drive, and others. These symptoms are often written off as being part of the normal aging process. They can be treated, though, if you are diagnosed properly and follow an individual functional medicine plan which includes hormone therapy.
