Dr. Berg talks about if its safe for menopausal women with adrenal fatigue to do ketosis and intermittent fasting. The answer is YES. The adrenals are normally supposed to help counter a drop in blood sugar and when you do intermittent fasting with adrenal issues, you could have a hard time because of the drop in blood sugars. The hormone called cortisol is what is called a glucocorticoid, which is a glucose regulating hormone. So the adrenals are definitely connected to blood sugars. Cortisol if too high can mobilize more sugar and even turn your body protein into sugar thus raising your insulin and even causes insulin resistance or diabetes. So in other words, if your cortisol is high, chances are you could also have high insulin. This means you need to do things to lower insulin - keto and intermittent fasting!

Here are some tips:
1. Take electrolytes to increase potassium and other minerals
2. B vitamins (nutritional yeast)
3. Sea salt - the adrenals need more sodium, because they lose more.
4. Trace minerals, esp, chromium and zinc.
5. More protein
6. Omega 3 (Krill is great)
7. Take long walks
8. Go slow - go at this gradually and eventually you'll be in full keto adaptation and no longer running only on glucose (avoid the blood sugar swings).
