What Are Thyroid and Adrenal Insufficiencies?
Do you deal with constant fatigue, brain fog, cold extremities, or unexplained weight gain? These symptoms are sometimes connected to a thyroid disorder or adrenal insufficiency. The thyroid and the adrenal glands both play an important role in regulating the body's hormones. With a thyroid deficiency, the thyroid produces insufficient amounts of hormones (hypothyroidism), leading to a slowed metabolism. On the other hand, adrenal insufficiency occurs when the body produces too little cortisol, often as a result of chronic or long-term stress. The wellness professionals at Cameron Wellness and Spa offer thyroid and endocrine balancing solutions to help patients achieve optimal energy levels.

How Thyroid and Adrenal Support Works
Adrenal fatigue and underactive thyroid can produce similar symptoms, and in some cases, they are linked, as adrenal fatigue can worsen a thyroid problem. During your appointment at Cameron Wellness and Spa, we will review your symptoms and health history. In most cases, a blood test will be performed to measure your thyroid and adrenal hormone levels. Your personalized treatment plan for thyroid or adrenal support will vary based on you as an individual. Some of our common approaches include IV nutrient therapy, hormone therapy, and acupuncture. We may also make recommendations for diet and lifestyle changes. The goal is to treat the root cause of hypothyroidism and adrenal insufficiency so your body can return back to its natural balance.
Thyroid And Adrenal Glands FAQ
Can thyroid problems affect the adrenal glands?
The thyroid gland produces hormones responsible for keeping the body’s systems functioning properly. If the thyroid gland isn’t working the way it should, it can contribute to a host of health issues. These include fatigue, weight gain, depression, loss of mental focus, forgetfulness, and others which are similar to problems with the adrenal gland.
What is adrenal insufficiency?
Adrenal insufficiency, or adrenal fatigue, occurs when the adrenal gland produces too little cortisol. Often this is caused by chronic or long-term stress. This can lead to symptoms, including brain fog, fatigue, pain in the lower body, weakness, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, coldness in the extremities, unexplained weight gain, and others.
What are the warning signs of thyroid problems?
Symptoms of a thyroid problem often include:
- Unexplained weight gain/loss
- Mood swings
- Digestive problems
- Vision changes
- Hair loss
- Memory issues
- Skin problems
What are the symptoms of a malfunctioning adrenal gland?
People whose adrenal glands aren’t functioning properly may have trouble falling asleep at night or waking in the morning, chronic tiredness, cravings for salt and sugar, general lack of energy, and more.
