state of adrenal fatigue, leading to negative impacts on the thyroid and pancreas. A lot of people do not know this, but the health of these three glands impacts each other if one suffers so do the other two - causing health issues related to all three glands. Adrenal fatigue slows thyroid function and inhibits your ability to convert thyroid hormones into their active form causing hypothyroid symptoms.
Thyroid hormone resistance increases with chronic stress. Inflammatory immune cells are released during the stress response, which makes thyroid receptors less sensitive to thyroid hormones. When the body is under stress, the immune system is suppressed so the body can focus on overcoming the stressors. However, this leaves the body more vulnerable to viral infections, some of which can trigger autoimmune thyroid disease.
As you can see, there is very much a full circle issue that can develop if stress is not managed properly or if the adrenal glands are not supported with lifestyle and herbs.
