What are the adrenal glands?
According to MedlinePlus, your adrenal glands are two small organs located on top of each kidney. The adrenal glands produce various hormones that are required for survival and health. Hormones are chemicals that travel through your bloodstream and control how various parts of your body function.
Cortisol, aldosterone, adrenaline, and noradrenaline are hormones produced by the adrenal glands. They also produce hormones that your body can use to generate sex hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. All of these hormones play critical roles, including:
- Converting food into energy and controlling blood sugar levels
- Maintaining normal blood pressure
- Responding to stress and illness
- Helping pregnancy develop
- Normalizing weight
- Controlling when and how quickly a child develops sexually
Adrenal glands commonly cause health problems by producing too little or too much of certain hormones, resulting in less than optimal hormone balance.
What are some of the most common types of adrenal disorders?
Your adrenal glands can be affected by a variety of conditions. According to Cleveland Clinic, some of the most common are:
- Adrenal insufficiency, also known as Addison’s disease. You don’t produce enough cortisol and/or aldosterone when you have this disorder.
- Cushing’s disease. Cortisol levels are abnormally high in this disorder.
These are medical disorders diagnosed by your doctor. However many people do not have these medical issues but do have less than optimal fluctuation of cortisol, an adrenal hormone that helps you deal with stress. Issues with cortisol being too high or too low in certain parts of the day can create fatigue, anxiety, nervousness, sleep issues, hair loss, skin disorders or even contribute to thyroid issues.
