I am getting tested for adrenal disorder, finally. You seem to have a lot of success. Did the supplements really help? I have gain 15 pounds in six months, watch everything I eat and exercised. So frustrated! Saw your success post and wondering if you might share.

Check out the full details in the mini goals forum, and ask me any questions about how I recovered and lost weight if you like! I want to post pictures once I'm at 20 lbs lost :-)

Hi Daisy,

Yes, I do believe that the supplements helped. I'm now pregnant, so I am more tired, yet if I avoid carbs I tend to feel better. The adaptogens were great on a daily basis, but nothing beats general vitamins, because when you're lacking in a particular vitamin or mineral, it can take months to return to normal. I LOVE my prenatals! I have also incorporated some fruit, and hardcore Probiotics, but I avoid all herbal, adaptogenic, and hormonal supplements now, since they haven't been tested much on pregnant women.

Good luck

Hello. Althogugh I don't have adrenal fatigue I do have Hashimotos disease which is a form of hypothyroid and occasion hyperthyroid that is auto immune mediated. I've had this for 6 yrs or so as well as hormone issues from being in induced menopause surgically after ovarian cancer. Yikes. So I'm on thyroid meds everyday and my situation is that I really feel good!! My weight is coming off I have waaaaaaay more energy and my thyroid levels are normal. Although if I forget my med ( occasion this happens) my thyroid actually swells and hurts. It will feel like it is hanging. Gross I know. So yes I just wanted to join the convo and also offer my support too.

Hello all! I'm also hypothyroid and have Hashimoto's. I'm also suspecting adrenal fatigue. Will definitely be asking for the tests when I go to my endo Monday! I'm getting married in November, and so far I've had no luck getting this weight off. I lose and gain the same 5-10 pounds over and over no matter what I do

Default Anyone have experience taking Cortef for adrenal fatigue?

Finally after two years and 4 doctors I found out I'm stage 3 adrenal fatigue, wheat allergy, low B12 and low in iron. My doctor took me off my bio identical hormones, had me stop with the weight training & HIIT training and put me on 25mg of Cortef daily & strict diet with guidelines for sleep and rest. Then in 3 to 4 months I return for another round of saliva testing to see if my adrenals are doing better and to measure my hormone levels. (her thought was that with my adrenal being so out of whack that my hormones were not at the correct level either)
My question is the concern of gaining more weight while on Cortef?
Any thoughts?

How would I know if I have adrenal fatigue? What are the symptoms?
