What are the Adrenal Glands?
The adrenal glands are small glands located at the top of the kidneys.
They produce hormones that help the body:
– Regulate blood pressure
– React to stressors like a major illness or injury
– Control blood sugar
– Burn protein and fat
What Type of Disorders can Happen in the Adrenal Glands?
Various conditions can occur in the adrenal glands and lead to overproduction or underproduction of certain hormones.
Nodule(s) or lump(s) may be formed in the adrenal gland and sometimes the nodule(s) can result in overproduction of certain hormones.
