Adrenal fatigue is really a dysfunction of your brain’s communication with your adrenals (HPA axis), not the adrenal gland itself. Chronic stressors can cause cortisol to remain high for a long time. Chronically high cortisol levels can tire your adrenal glands out — this is adrenal fatigue.
When your brain is shot your adrenal glands are not getting the message. Causing cortisol levels to be off causing it to be high when it should be low, low when it should be high, consistently low, or consistently too high. All of which can take a toll on your adrenal glands causing dysregulation.
