Adrenal Fatigue Overview
People can have Adrenal Fatigue separately from Hypothyroidism. But it is quite common for patients to have Adrenal Fatigue in connection with Hypothyroidism, as it was for me.
According to Natural Thyroid Treatment, of the millions of people who are diagnosed with thyroid conditions, many of these people also develop adrenal fatigue. If a healthcare professional aims their treatment directly at the thyroid gland and ignores the adrenals, there is absolutely no chance of restoring the patient’s health back to normal.
