What Is Adrenal Fatigue?

Normally, when we are stressed, the adrenal glands in the body respond by releasing hormones, like cortisol. For people who are constantly stressed, however, the adrenal glands may become overworked and stop producing the right amount of hormones they need. This is what's known as adrenal fatigue, which describes a broad range of symptoms associated with the adrenal glands not functioning properly anymore. Board-certified family physician and certified BioTE® provider Dr. Leslee McElrath provides treatment for adrenal fatigue through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). To learn more, contact Monarch Ideal Care in Fairlawn, OH to schedule a consultation.

What Are the Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue?

Typically, our patients in Fairlawn, OH can notice a wide range of symptoms stemming from adrenal fatigue. These symptoms can include:

  • Fatigue

How Is Adrenal Fatigue Treated?

During your initial consultation at Monarch Ideal Care, Dr. McElrath will ask about your symptoms, review your medical history, and may use a blood test to see where your cortisol levels are at. This will help her determine the amount of hormones you will need so she can develop a customized treatment plan for hormone replacement therapy. For BHRT, the hormones utilized are identical to the natural hormones produced in your body and come in tiny pellets that are inserted underneath your skin. This process allows the hormones to gradually be released into the bloodstream. Over time, you should notice an improvement in the symptoms caused by adrenal fatigue.

I have been seeing Dr. Leslee as a patient for a few months now. She’s great, she listens to my concerns with a professional, but relaxed approach. I will continue to refer patients to her because her bedside manner and knowledge set her apart.

Dr. McElrath has created a wonderful way of getting to know you as a person, not just a “patient”. She is eager to share with you a wealth of knowledge and guidance through individualized health coaching sessions; according to your personal needs. I loved working with her though this program because our sessions were not solely about “food” and “diet”. While nutrition is an important component in the topic of overall health and wellness, it is not the only focus throughout your time together. She has a strategic way of encouraging you to think outside the box, try new things, prioritize/create goals, and provides a professional outsider’s perspective on issues that she feels might be holding you back, emotionally, from becoming your best self. I specifically appreciated the user friendly patient portal and access to other wellness literature specific to my goals set for the next session. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is willing to make a commitment towards a healthier lifestyle and personal growth.
