Adrenal Fatigue in Children with Autism

Adrenal glands are essential to life because they help the body cope with, adapt to and withstand physical, emotional and environmental stressors. Although not always recognized by physicians, many ASD children have problems with their adrenal glands. Stressors are cumulative and if they persist over time, adrenal insufficiency or even an adrenal crisis may result. This presentation will help parents identify symptoms of adrenal fatigue and provide resources for diagnosis and treatment.
