    Probably because that is what they learned in school. Developments in the understanding of adrenal fatigue have been fairly recent.

    I listen to John Crisler on SHR who is on the up and coming with newest endo practices. He did a show on adrenal fatigue and said it its possible that the body could experiencr it. That has been awhile ago, would love to hear his thoughts again.

    It could indeed experience it but not by virtue of common stimulant utilization. Citing endocrinologists is a moot point (I know one of the top endos in the world at a medical institution...this is even his area of research)...all relevant research shows that adrenal fatigue in a stimulant-using, otherwise healthy user is nonexistent.

  8. Just out of curiosity what makes you think your adrenal glands are fatigued? I ask because if you are tolerant to stims it would most likely have more to do with an increased amount of adenosine receptors. At least, this is what I have come across in researching.

    EDIT: Dam, walked away from the PC and ^^^^already kinda got to what I was getting at.

    It isn't a medical condition, but many other things aren't medical conditions and they are still problems. We have had this discussed before on here and bb dot com

    I was JUST about to type this after I read the first post. Basically there is no evidence that the adrenals can become 'fatigued' from overuse. The term "adrenal fatigue" is often just a poor label to describe HPA dysfunction.

    This idea that the adrenals can get tired and need rest is ridiculous with no real supporting evidence.

  14. But what we can do is help the OP with his problem...

    Let me guess, OP has been on stimulants (pre-workouts) for months and no longer reaps the stimulant benefits. OP wants to know if he should take time off or can take something to "reset" or "cleanse" his adrenal glands (lol).

  15. Hmmm, first post is somewhat elusive...What if OP is actually asking for a list of supplements that WILL cause Adrenal fatigue? Hmmmm?

    lol

  17. we just had this debate on bb.com and im open for a nice discussion and get others thoughts in on this:

    The Adrenal glands work by producing hormones that regulate many bodily functions. They help regulate blood pressure, blood volume, androgens, cortisol, epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) (your fight or flight hormones).

    CAFFEINE and other stimulants disrupt regular adrenal function by sending a signal to your adrenal glands to increase the production of the stress hormones epinephrine, norepiniphrine and cortisol. The increase in epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine is what causes the rise in blood pressure as well as that "buzzed" feeling. This is all done by your body to prepare itself for stress.

    So, CAFFEINE technically tricks the body into preparing itself for a stressful situation by signalling the adrenal glands to produce these stress hormones and prepare for "fight or flight".

    Now you have your daily stressful events at work, school, relationships, as well as physical stress from the gym and then you throw in caffeine and other stimulants, which are proven to stimulate adrenals, and you're telling me you're not overworking your adrenal glands?

    What happens to people's Pancreas who consume sugary and starchy high glycemic foods their whole lives? It malfunctions and can no longer produce the hormone it is supposed to produce... INSULIN and you get DIABETES!! Which I will call PANCREATIC FATIGUE for argument's sake.

    What happens to cocaine and methamphetamine addicts who abuse these drugs their whole lives? Depression and continued addiction because of the toll it has taken on their adrenal glands. And don't forget what it does to another very important organ, THE HEART. Eventually, these stimulants cause the adrenal glands to improperly function and cause the continuous release of catecholamines which have a very stressful impact on the heart, and over time can even cause the heart to stop beating. Heart fatigue?


    So yes you're right, TECHNICALLY the term "Adrenal Fatigue" is not a clinically proven illness. But neither is Pancreatic Fatigue or Coronary Fatigue. Instead we call these two organ malfunctions DIABETES and HEART DISEASE.

    No, it's not an issue of semantics and how we classify the illness. Organ dysfunction simply does not explain what you go through when you abuse stimulants.

  21. This is something that we should, have posted In ask dana houser section. Would be nice to get some medical expertise in here...or his thoughts

    here is where the problem begins. It is the idea that your adrenals have the ability to get tired, fatigued or overworked. This is simply not true and there is absolutely nothing to suggest that it is even a possibility.

    Think about a patient who has cushing. Their adrenals will kick out enormous amounts of cortisol almost non stop and not once do they "get tired". So let me the ask, if someones adrenals with cushings, which is reciving a constant stimulus, and their adrenals continue to function just fine, what makes you think it is possible for our adrenals to get fatigued?

    Adrenal fatigue is more then just a mislabel because along with this term comes the idea that if you give them a "rest" somehow everything will get better. Now is it possible for someone to have a adrenal insufficiency? Absolutely and it is called addisons disease but more than likely when someone uses the horrible term "adrenal fatigue" they are usually describing HPA dysfunction. When this happens, yes the body can stop naturally producing enough hormones BUT it isnt because the adrenals are tired but usually a deeper underlying cause which is causing something to become out of balance and if I remember correctly the typical treatment given for this is glucocorticoids but even then it has had a fairly limited success rate. As coop said this is relatively new and there are still many unanswered questions.

    Think of it this way (is steroid terms )
    I am going to try and compare the HPA axis to the HPTA

    Here we have you HPA axis


    Now my understanding of it is the hypothalamus will sense serum cortisol and modulate CRH/ACTH output in so to keep glucocortcoid levels constant.

    Now to compare this to the HPTA


    the way this works is somewhat similar, the hypothalamus releases GnHR and GHRH to our pituitary which in turn releases LH and FSH to the testes which release the testosterone.

    Now with HPA dysfunction, it is not that the adrenals become "fatigued" but it is that a mechanism exists by which adrenal response is chronically down-regulated (usually after a prolonged period of stress) and this mechanism as far as I know has yet to be identified (although there are some theories floating about).

    Now back to the HPTA comparison, with HPA dysfunction basically something is out of wack and you end up with a low hypothalamic CRH production which leads to low cortisol production. Now lets compare to someone whose HPTA is out of wack shall we. We all know that when coming off a cycle of exogenous androgens our body down regulates testosterone production (via negative feedback of the androgens). What we end up with is too many androgen receptors of the hypothalamus have become activated so there is a decrease in GnRH release which ultimately equals a decrease in testosterone production.

    Now that said, does anything in the HPTA become "fatigued"? Or is it there was a disruption of the balance (i.e the introduction of exogenous androgens)? Would the solution to low test be to give your testes or leydig cells a rest? No it wont be, the solution is to somehow stimulate GnHR release. So if the solution to low test output isnt rest then why is the solution to low adrenal output that it needs rest?

    The main problem with HPA dysfunction is we dont know exactly what the mechanism for adrenal fatigue is. Again, as Coop said above , the developments in the understanding in all of this is fairly recent and there is much that is still unknown. Oh and Mr coop if I got anything wrong please feel free to correct me as I dont have a full grasp of it entirely yet.

  23. We need a supplement that reduces caffeine tolerance to its virgin like state. Whoever discovers this will be filthy rich.

  24. Can a simple question be asked that would allow a fairly straight forward answer,
    What causes/can cause adrenal insufficiency?
    Use of stims then stopping them, ongoing stress, poor sleep, sh***y diet and lifestyle, or is the cause not that easy?

    So your telling me that the adrenals are the only organ that can't be over worked?
