Adrenal Fatigue: What Causes It? Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms & Treatment

Adrenal fatigue – like many things in the medical field – is a controversial topic. It refers to a collection of symptoms, ranging from anxiety to sleeplessness to extreme fatigue. Also known as Addison’s disease, adrenal insufficiency is a related but more specific condition, which refers to an insufficient production of hormones produced by your adrenal glands.  Furthermore, while adrenal insufficiency is a recognized and diagnosable medical condition, adrenal fatigue is not.
