|The most common adrenal gland dysfunction is adrenal fatigue, a hormone weakness with varying degrees of reduction in the function of the adrenal glands.
Adrenal fatigue is the common term for the more complex medical condition known as adrenal insufficiency. As both terms suggest, it is a form of over-exhaustion of the adrenal glands. When we talk about adrenal fatigue though, it is usually associated with stressful conditions. Whereas adrenal insufficiency can refer to a number of medical conditions, like Addison’s disease and Sheehan’s syndrome, with symptoms of fatigue and exhaustion as well. They occur primarily due to impairments in the hormone production of the adrenal gland or even the hypothalamic-pituitary axis.
