Getting Support When You Have Adrenal Fatigue

Part of Adrenal Fatigue For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Many people aren’t aware that adrenal fatigue exists or that it’s a medical problem. This lack of information is an issue not only among family and friends but also for many people in the medical community. Be candid with your healthcare provider and your family about this condition:

  • If your healthcare provider refuses to have an open discussion with you about your symptoms, consider working with another provider. Integrative medicine physicians, naturopathic physicians, and other holistic health providers are very aware of this diagnosis and its treatment.

  • Tell your family about the symptoms you’re experiencing. Explain to them why you feel that you likely have adrenal fatigue and need further evaluation and treatment.

  • Ask a family member or friend to come with you when you visit your healthcare practitioner. Take notes and ask questions during your visit.
