Adrenal Fatigue And Kidney Disease

2013-03-17 10:05

Adrenal fatigue may have the same symptoms and signs as kidney disease. Such as both adrenal fatigue and kidney disease will have fatigue, susceptibility to colds and infections, poor digestion, difficulty in concentration, reduced sex drive, irregular periods in women patients, etc.

In case of adrenal failure, adrenal glands will produce more hormone called cortisol which can cause moon-face, obesity, glucose tolerance, high blood pressure, abnormal growth of hair, osteoporosis, kidney stone, irregular menstruation, etc. Kidney disease patients may be very familiar with these symptoms because they are very same as the side effects of hormone drugs such as prednisone. Therefore if kidney patients are taking prednisone, they may not realize that there is any problem with their adrenal glands. If prednisone is stopped but these symptoms do not disappear or continue to become even worse, you can have a test to check if there is any adrenal disorders or problems.

There are some symptoms that are different from that of kidney disease that might help you have an early detection of adrenal fatigue. They are low blood pressure, trembling, energetic in the evening, nervousness, crave for salty or sweet foods, etc.
