FAQ's For Adrenal Insufficiency

   

The most common cause of primary adrenal insufficiency is autoimmune disease. Hormones cannot be produced when adrenal glands are damaged.

Herbs like Licorice root, maca root, golden root and siberian ginseng are important to reduce stress levels which are required to be maintained when one has adrenal insufficiency.

Fatigue
Loss of appetite
Vomiting or Nausea
Muscle Weakness
Diarrhea
Muscle pain or Joint pain
Drop in blood pressure
Low blood sugar levels
Sweating (especially in children)
Women experience irregular menstrual cycles

Hydrocortisone through IV or intramuscular. Further treatment and moniroting can be done at the hospital.

The inability to produce cortisol with stress can lead to an addisonian crisis. It is a life-threatening situation and causes low blood pressure, low blood sugar levels and high levels of potassium in the blood.

 
The adrenal glands are located above the kidneys and produce hormones essential for body functions. Adrenal Insufficiency occurs when the glands do not produce enough of cortisol hormone. There are 2 kinds of adrenal insufficiency:

Primary adrenal insufficiency also known as Addison's disease. When the adrenal glands are damaged it causes Addison’s disease. Cortisol and aldosterone hormones are not produced enough because of this. This is a rare condition and can occur at any age.

Secondary adrenal insufficiency occurs when ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) cannot be produced by the pituitary gland. ACTH signals the adrenal glands to release hormones at the right time.

Adrenal insufficiency symptoms gain momentum slowly. These include:
Fatigue
Loss of appetite
Vomiting or Nausea
Muscle Weakness
Diarrhea

Other symptoms include:
Muscle pain or Joint pain
Drop in blood pressure
Low blood sugar levels
Sweating (especially in children)
Women experience irregular menstrual cycles

Adrenal crisis is when symptoms suddenly get worse and people do not know they have AI.

When the immune system attacks the adrenal glands, it causes primary adrenal insufficiency. Other causes may include:
Certain types of Cancer
Infections caused by fungus
Tuberculosis infection of the adrenal glands
Genetic endocrine glands disorders

Use of steroids can lead to secondary adrenal insufficiency. Other causes include:
Tumors in the pituitary gland
Pituitary gland does not receive enough blood
Removal of pituitary gland due to radiation treatment
Removal of parts of the hypothalamus

Adrenal insufficiency treatment depends on the cause of the condition.Hormone replacement may be required to replace those that the adrenal glands are not producing. But if it is Addison's disease then aldosterone should also be taken. Corticosteroids and intravenous fluids are the start of the treatment for Addison’s disease. This may have to be taken for the rest of one’s life.

Alternative therapies like meditation and yoga can reduce stress. In case of Addison's disease, it is very important to keep low stress levels. HerbsDaily offers a wide range of supplements from various leading brands to provide the possible benefits for the management of adrenal insufficiency.
