Hypocortisolism Treatment in Ayurveda - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

Hypocortisolism is also known as Addison's disease or Hypoadrenalism. This is a rare medical disorder characterized by insufficient production of cortisol hormone by the adrenal gland. Adrenal glands are located above the kidneys. Cortisol hormone plays an important role in the proper functioning of the body during stress. Blood pressure and blood sugar levels are maintained by this hormone. The inflammatory response is slowed down and also regulate the carbohydrate, fats and protein metabolism. During insufficiency of cortisol hormone, all these functions are seriously disturbed resulting in a range of symptoms. This disease can prove fatal.



  • It can be an autoimmune disease in which body’s own immune system attacks the adrenal glands resulting in improper functioning of the glands.
  • There can be some other causes of Hypocortisolism like trauma, tuberculosis, fungal infection, surgery, and cancer.
  • Secondary adrenal insufficiency can result in Hypocortisolism where pituitary gland does not produce enough ACTH (adrenocorticotropin), adrenal gland stimulating hormone to produce cortisol.


  • Fatigue.
  • Decreased appetite and weight loss.
  • Hyperpigmentation, i.e. darkening of the skin.
  • Low blood pressure.
  • Craving for salty things.
  • Hypoglycemia, i.e. low blood sugar.
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
  • Constipation.
  • Pain in the abdomen.
  • Pain in joints and muscles.
  • Irritability and other behavioral symptoms.
  • Loss of body hair.
  • Sexual dysfunction in females.
