Q: 

Need advice on labs for adrenal & hormones

A: It appears you may have a serious suppression of your adrenal glands and that can affect other hormone tests. This is potentially a life threatening condition and you need proper tests to verify the situation. I don''t know what adrenal granuals are or if they do anything for adrenals. If they do, you might well have caused your own suppression. It can take up to a year to recover fully from such a suppression. Self medicating for adrenal problems is not recommended! Get to the doctor and have him conduct blood and 24 hour urine collection tests for cortisol and have a complete hormone panel done. If those don''t come back normal, then you need more provocative tests to prove

Q: 

Trying to Find Dr that covers adrenal hormones

A: Hi Fairycakes, This can be a difficult issue. Unfortunately, endocrinology tends to be a busy field so often endocrinologists will choose their favorite issues and only see those because they don''t have enough time to see anything else. Probably the best thing to do is keep calling endocrinologists in your area. If you are unable to find one that deals with these issues you may want to try explaining your situation (that you cannot find an endocrinologist willing to see you) and see if one will make an exception for you. Best wishes....


Q: 

What Are the Different Types of adrenal Disorders?

A: There are a number of types of adrenal disorders which can be roughly broken into three categories: disorders which lead to overproduction of hormones, disorders associated with underproduction of hormones, and disorders which impact overall adrenal function. These conditions have a number of causes and treatment approaches which usually require the attention of an endocrinologist, a doctor who specializes in hormone disorders and imbalances. The adrenal glands are roughly star-shaped glands located on top of the kidneys. Two areas in these glands, known as the cortex and medulla, produce hormones. These glands make
Q: 

What Is Late-Onset adrenal Hyperplasia?

A: Late-onset adrenal hyperplasia refers to a congenital endocrine disorder, associated with an enlargement of the adrenal glands, which causes increased aldosterone production and an insufficiency of cortisol. Late-onset adrenal hyperplasia, or non-classical adrenal hyperplasia (NCAH), can produce symptoms after infancy or when an individual reaches prepubescence. Some individuals may not experience symptoms until puberty or post-partum, while others never exhibit any characteristics of the disorder. Late-onset adrenal hyperplasia might not produce life-threatening symptoms, but adrenal crisis is a possibility. Health care providers diagnose...


Q: 

What Is an adrenal Nodule?

A: An adrenal nodule is a mass that forms from unchecked cellular reproduction within the adrenal gland. Usually comprised of neuroendocrine cells, an adrenal nodule is generally benign in its composition. Often, symptomatic individuals possess a genetic predisposition for adrenal nodule development. When treatment is warranted, the approach may range from the administration of medication to gland excision.. Inadvertently discovered adrenal masses are frequently referred to as adrenal incidentalomas. In such cases, routine or diagnostic imaging tests reveal the nodule`s presence. Whether the mass is discovered by chance or the individual is...


Q: 

What Are the Different Types of adrenal Fatigue Treatment?

A: When someone is constantly in the fight, flight or freeze mode, the adrenal glands may become exhausted. Many medical doctors look only for extreme adrenal hormone problems and may resist ordering tests for low-level symptoms. Holistic practitioners are usually much more willing to consider adrenal fatigue. They may use different adrenal fatigue treatments consisting of lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements. Pregnant women and those with chronic health conditions should consult a doctor before starting any kind of adrenal fatigue treatment. The adrenal glands control the release of 50 separate hormones...


Q: 

What Is The Relationship Between Candida And adrenals?

A: Candida is usually thought to result from the weakness of the immune system following antibiotic theraphy. The unbalanced endocrine system play role in candida overgrowth. Once the candida albicans species are overgrown they can bind to hormones changing their key shape. So they are unable to fit lock in their receptor. they mainly affect the adrenal hormones. The adrenals are the glands that secrete adrenal fluid into the body and are attached to the candida glands as well. When there is a hyperactivity of adrenal gland one of its consecuences is a lower activity of inmune system. For this reason is more probable for candida to infect and...

Q: 

adrenal fatigue

A: Josephine, These are all really great questions. The adrenal systems and thyroid systems often compensate for each other when one is weakened.  Unfortunately, if both are somewhat abnormal at the time of diagnosis, it can be very hard to know where the problem started. adrenal issues can and do correct.  Some of the nutritional things you are doing are very helpful.  I also recommend stress reduction, examining sleep patterns and habits, and looking for other sources of adrenal stress such as food allergies.  When the stress is off the adrenal system and it is well nourished, it tends to recover well.  I would not worry about adrenal...


Q: 

adrenal extract

A: Hi Sallie, Why are you interested in adrenal extracts? Did a professional recommend them to you? Is it an oral (by mouth) form? Personally, I wouldn"t take this substance without a professional recommendation after an in-person evaluation. adrenal hormones are very potent...not something to be taken lightly. Also, I have the impression that these kinds of substances have a history of being associated with quacks and charletans...another good reason to seek reliable professional help before taking this. At the very least, I would think that the QUALITY of the product would be far more important than finding the cheapest product. As I understand it, the "raw" refers to how the
