Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms

The adrenal glands are situated above the kidneys. Each adrenal has an outer part, the cortex and a core, the medulla. The adrenal cortex produces three main types of hormones: glucocorticoids, mineralcorticoids, and sex steroids. Glucocorticoids influence the metabolism of fat, protein, and carbohydrates, promoting the breakdown of protein and the release of fat and sugars into the bloodstream. The adrenal medulla contains many modified nerve cells, which produce the hormone epinephrine and norepinephrine. These hormones are released in bursts during emergency situations. They act to increase the strength and rate of heart contraction, raise blood sugar level, elevate blood pressure, and increase breathing. Some of the common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include increased irritabilty or mood swings, fatigue, feeling tired but wired at night, insomnia, fuzzy or foggy memory, worsened pain, dull skin or breakouts, and difficulty with weight loss. Supporting the adrenal glands is essential to ensure optimal vitality.
