Adrenal dysfunction can be a serious health issue that can occur when hormones become imbalanced. The adrenal glands, which are located at the top of the kidneys, are endocrine glands that produce steroids that perform specific functions and work with other hormones to keep the body on track. Adrenal fatigue or dysfunction is most common after serious physical or emotional stresses. If your doctor has diagnosed you with adrenal fatigue, our Thousand Oaks pharmacy can help.
Because the adrenal glands are responsible for producing cortisol, anti-inflammatory hormones and antioxidants, your body may struggle to convert food into energy or handle allergic reactions. Good sleep habits, stress management, regular exercise and balanced nutrition can all provide your adrenal glands with the support they need during periods of illness or severe emotional stress. However, a healthy lifestyle may not be enough to counteract the type of stress that can accompany long-term stresses.
Symptoms of adrenal dysfunction can be vague but debilitating. Immune function can be impaired, and you may feel fatigued, run down and have difficulty concentrating. Some may be more sensitive to cold and struggle with low blood pressure. Your doctor may recommend tests to determine the precise nature of the imbalance and identify the most appropriate treatment strategy. Our Thousand Oaks pharmacist can work closely with your doctor to create a treatment regimen that meets your unique needs and helps rebalance your system.
Several treatment options for adrenal dysfunction are available, and our Thousand Oaks pharmacist will help you and your doctor determine the most appropriate regimen for your needs. Synthetic hormones are a common option, but natural thyroid is also available and may offer you a more comfortable treatment experience. We can compound specific formulations according to your doctor’s exact specifications and can even eliminate problematic ingredients, such as artificial dyes or fillers. Nutritional supplements can be added according to your and your doctor’s recommendations, and we can include several compatible medications or therapies in a single dosage form for your convenience.
