Adrenal Fatigue

My New Workout. (Linked to Amazon)

The test results reported on the last post could lead to a label of adrenal fatigue.  Adrenal fatigue is an unrecognized medical diagnosis.  From the reading I have done so far, it seems the only acceptable adrenal diagnosis is adrenal insufficiency or Addison’s Disease.  Two of the hallmark symptoms of Addison’s are weight loss and hyper-pigmentation.  I have weight gain and hypo-pigmentation.  What I do have is fatigue and low blood pressure.
