i think that i have adrenal fatigue and it has gotten so bad lately. the main reason it came up in my mind was my frequent urination and how i cant seem to hold any fluids. well i feel like since im urinating out more than i can take in that im eventually just gonna die from dehydration. i have read to add salt to water, and drink it slowly throughout the day, but i have problems drinking it slowly throughtout the day. also im not sure about how much salt to add to my water to help can anybody give me any advice. also i may be losing muscle quickly, but not too sure about that. ive been losing weight constantly while eating alot and not exercising it seemsMarch 19, 2017 at 7:24 pm #10928
Frequent urination can certainly be a sign of hormonal imbalance. Depleted levels of hormones and hormone precursors (as often seen in adrenal fatigue) can lead to lower aldosterone levels. Aldosterone is a hormone that controls your salt balance, how much water you retain, and how frequently you urinate. High levels of aldosterone can cause excess water retention, but low levels can lead to polyuria (frequent urination).
Low aldosterone levels are very common among those with adrenal fatigue, or HPA axis dysfunction. Taking 1-2 teaspoons of salt per day (mixed in water) can help. Many people experience cravings for salt and feel better immediately after drinking it. Note that you might want to consult or doctor, or at check your blood pressure, before adding lots of salt to your diet. I hope that helps!
