The adrenals are small glands that sit on top of each Kidney. They are responsible for producing many hormones. One of the most important adrenal hormones is cortisol.
“Adrenal Fatigue” is a controversial condition. Doctors are taught in medical school that the adrenals are either fully functioning, or not functioning at all, which is a disorder known as Addison’s Disease.
An increasing number of doctors are however forming the opinion that there is an intermediate zone of adrenal function where the adrenals are producing cortisol, but not in sufficient quantities for optimum health. This has been called “adrenal fatigue” or “adrenal exhaustion”. It is thought that this state can arise if a person is subject to high levels of stress over a long period.
