What are Adrenal Glands?
Adrenal glands are triangular-shaped glands located on top of the kidneys. They produce hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, steroids, cortisol, and cortisone, and chemicals such as adrenalin (epinephrine), norepinephrine, and dopamine.
When the glands produce more or less hormones than required by the body, disease conditions may occur.
- Cushing's syndrome
- Primary aldosteronism
- Addison's disease
- Waterhouse-Friderichsen syndrome
- Adrenal insufficiency
