    I know someone else recently mentioned this in the forum too, but I would be very interested in any further comments on adrenal fatigue or insufficiency?  Anyone else here actually diagnosed with this?  If so, how were you diagnosed and treated?  

    I've been researching and feel I may have pin-pointed a cause for many/all of my remaining symptoms: continued weight loss, on-going fatigue, irritability, achiness, getting dizzy when standing up, occasional nausea, very difficult time getting out of bed in the morning, no energy, weak muscles etc.  Of course, I see it is something most traditional medical doctors don't believe in-UGH!

    What type of testing should be done to confirm (salivary, blood, urine)?  

    Dr. O, do you treat patients for this?  Is this commonly associated with gluten intolerance?

    i had adrenal fatigue.  was diagnosed with a salivary test.  he had me on pantothenic acid, b6, vit c – time released, can't remember what else.  he said more protein. there was a few other vitamins.  i will try to remember.  actually think i am fighting with it again.  i let rice back in my diet for several months because of EXTREME stress but now i am having all symptoms again.  so putting myself back on some of these vitamins.

    Adrenal dysfunction is a very common manifestation of gluten intolerance.  You can have an Adrenal Stress Index test (ADI).  Diagnos-Techs has a very reliable panel.  

    Let me know how it turns out.

     

    All the best,

    Dr. Osborne

    Thanks Dr. O, I am very hopeful……..the doctor I have an appointment with in a few weeks is actually on the provider panel for that lab you mentioned.  Smile
