Effects of Adrenal Gland Disorders
The adrenal glands are divided into two sections: adrenal cortex and adrenal medulla. When there is an adrenal disorder, the symptoms will depend on what part of the adrenal glands are impacted and the type of disorder. Adrenal glands can be affected by tumors or cancer or by various diseases, including Cushing’s disease, Conn’s syndrome and Addison’s disease. The disorders can result in hormonal imbalances. The adrenal glands may produce too much or too little of certain hormones, including epinephrine and norepinephrine, that impact the metabolism and blood pressure. Cortisol is another hormone produced by the adrenal gland that is vital for health. Imbalances can jeopardize health and result in a wide range of symptoms.
