If you have read my article on fatigue and you feel that it described you and your symptoms, you should PRINT and FILL OUT the Adrenal Symptoms Questionnaire and bring it to your first appointment with Dr. Aieta.
The Adrenal Symptoms Questionnaire is a tool for helping to diagnose adrenal gland dysfunction that patients can quickly complete. The answers to the questions help determine whether the adrenal glands are likely implicated as a factor in a person’s health concerns. The results of the questionnaire will create a picture of how the adrenal glands are functioning in terms of their response to stress. This questionnaire will aid me in determining your diagnosis and treatment.
Severity of Symptoms Ranking
The questionnaire is easy to complete. Simply read each statement, decide its degree of severity, and then place the appropriate number beside each statement based on the severity ranking below.
Please rank your symptom according to the categories below and enter a number from 0-3 for each question.
0 = Never
1 = Occasionally (1-4 times per month)
2 = Moderate in severity and occurs moderately in frequency (1-4 times per week)
3 = Intense in severity and occurs frequently (more than 4 times per week)
