Are you experiencing heart palpitations, trouble sleeping, a racing mind, hot flashes, stomach aches, muscle weakness or rapid weight gain primarily in the face, abdomen or chest? You could have high cortisol levels and not even know it.
Everyone experiences stress, but when it becomes chronic, or you don’t know how to manage stress levels, that’s when it can be an issue. Chronic or intermittent stress can affect your overall wellbeing including your adrenals. Your adrenal gland makes the hormones DHEA and cortisol, and the levels can change because of ongoing stress.
In this short video, Dr. Tara Scott explains how cortisol works and how to know if your cortisol levels are too high.
