What to do About Adrenal Fatigue From Lyme Disease

Published by editor on

One of the many symptoms you may have from Lyme disease is fatigue. Now, this may
come off as simple fatigue. That means you may mistake it for just being stressed or
overworked. There are several types of fatigue to consider though. One of the types of
fatigue is adrenal fatigue. This means that you are experiencing fatigue because your
adrenal gland is not functioning properly or at a slower pace. This can lead to hormones
not being produced at a normal speed. Here are some things you can do to help combat
this issue.

Change of Diet

The first thing you need to do if you are experiencing adrenal fatigue is change your
diet. You want to change your diet to something that helps speed up your body
functions. This means food that helps with colon cleansing and digestion. You also need
foods that are gluten free as gluten can slow your system and reactions to digestion and
mineral absorption. If you are uncertain of the best diet for you consider either a
naturally gluten free option like the paleo diet or going to a full Lyme disease option
known as the Lyme diet.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

The main thing that your adrenals do is produce hormones that are needed for your
body to function. If your adrenals are in fatigue that means you are developing fewer
hormones. This may not be a huge issue if you are able to get treatment early.
However, if you were not able to get early treatment and if you have recurring Lyme
disease issues then you may need to take hormone replacement therapy to help boost
the levels in your system.

Increased Antibiotics

One thing your doctor may consider is to give you an increase in antibiotics. This will
help cure the Lyme disease and get it out of your system. If you have recurring Lyme
disease you may find that you are on this treatment often. There are issues that are
associated with that. If you are concerned about increased antibiotics and your immune
system, consider a consult with your doctor.

Specialist Consultation

The final thing you can do if you are experiencing adrenal fatigue is to see a specialist in
the area of adrenals. They have a number of tests they can offer you. They can also
narrow down what the issue actually is and what they need to do to help you move on
from this and repair your adrenals.

These are just a few of the steps you can take. If you find these aren’t working and you
still need assistance, contact your doctor. They can help you with a treatment plan and
working with you on other methods that may be an option for you.
