The Destructive Effect of High Cortisol Levels

high cortisol levels

What is cortisol? In its normal function, cortisol helps us meet life’s challenges by converting proteins into energy, releasing glycogen and counteracting inflammation. For a short time, that’s okay. But at sustained high levels, cortisol gradually tears your body down. Cortisol is one essential we can’t live without.  But too much of a good thing is not healthy.

Sustained high cortisol levels destroy healthy muscle and bone; slow down healing and normal cell regeneration; co-opt biochemicals needed to make other vital hormones; impair digestion, metabolism and mental function; interfere with healthy endocrine function; and weaken your immune system.

Adrenal fatigue may be a factor in many related conditions, including fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, and premature menopause, to name just a few. It may also produce a host of other unpleasant symptoms, from acne to hair loss. The really good news is that is easily treatable.
