Q: If someone has been diagnosed with Hypoglycemia, Chronic Fatigue, and Anxiety disorder, does that mean that it is because of the adrenals not working properly?
A: First of all, while hypoglycemia, fatigue on a chronic basis, and anxiety are symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue, it does not mean that it is solely confined to Adrenal Fatigue. Bear in mind that these can also be associated with other medical issues. The first thing one has to do is to make sure a full medical workup is accomplished and is negative. If everything is negative, then one can look into Adrenal Fatigue as the cause. We do see many people exhibiting those three symptoms happening simultaneously, but it really all depends on the person. A good history will give you many salient points to put the whole piece together. Usually these three symptoms are minor; there is usually is a bigger picture involved. Find a practitioner and make sure a good history is obtained. From there, you should be able to discover many more symptoms that go along with this. From that, a whole picture will emerge and that is really the proper approach. Otherwise, you can be misled into treating symptoms, which over time can backfire.
