  1. “a medically unrecognized diagnosis”
    Dr. Nippodt is essentially stating that adrenal fatigue does not exist. He does say that adrenal insufficiency, or Addision’s disease, does exist. How does one get to the point of getting Addision’s disease? Are we healthy one day and have Addision’s the next? I don’t think so. Or, according to Dr. Nippodt, we really might have fibromyalgia, another disease that doctors once thought did not exist, or depression. Thanks, Doc. Should I take antidpressants while my adrenals continue to decline? There ARE tests that can show adrenal hormones to be whacked out or below the norm but not to the point of warranting a diagnosis of Addison’s. What does one do with these tests results–wait until we have full-blown Addison’s? Many, many doctors agree that Adrenal Fatigue is real and must be treated in order for the patient to be relieved of suffering and to avoid getting Addison’s. It’s his attitude that is dangerous, not the so-called incorrect diagnosis of Adrenal Fatigue.
