When Adrenal Fatigue was first discovered many of today’s tests did not exist and a diagnosis was made on the basis of the patient’s symptoms alone. Or together with a series of very useful physical tests which are described below. Naturally these physical tests are clearly much more subjective than traditional blood, saliva and urine tests. But they can be a useful diagnostic tool. Especially if positive results from these physical tests are accompanied by other positive test results from modern laboratory tests.
Adrenal Fatigue can be very confusing and it can really be hard to understand the truth behind it. There are a number of myths that people who suffer from adrenal fatigue may have heard or believe that are detrimental to recovery. Learn the truth about these myths so that you can treat your adrenal fatigue successfully.
There seems to be a lot of confusion as to whether Adrenal Fatigue is actually the General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS) or not – or what the relationship is between the two of them. To make matters even more complicated some doctors and healthcare professionals refer to Adrenal Fatigue’s 3 Stages, 4 Stages, 5 Stages or even 7 Stages. So what is the relationship between Adrenal Fatigue and GAS and how many stages does Adrenal Fatigue have? In this first post I will give you my two cents on both matters and hope to clear things up for you. You will come to see that Adrenal Fatigue is actually a misnomer and a more accurate term would be HPA axis dysfunction.
