What are the adrenal glands?
The adrenal glands are paired organs that sit atop the kidneys. They produce a variety of essential hormones, the most familiar of which is their namesake compound – adrenaline. Their main functions include maintenance of body fluids, electrolytes and blood pressure. They also play a role in maintaining blood sugar and heart rate.
Tumors in the adrenal glands cause the following conditions:
Cushing’s Syndrome –
This tumor-caused disease most frequently occurs in adults between the ages of 20 and 50. Adrenal gland cancer in India, or any place in the world is caused by excess production of hydrocortisone (cortisol), the problem often lies not with the adrenal gland but with the pituitary gland in the brain.
Conn’s Disease (hyperaldosteronism) –
This extremely rare disease usually occurs in women. It may result from excessive growth (hyperplasia) in tissues of both adrenal glands or a benign tumor in a single gland. It leads to over-production of aldosterone, potassium loss and increased sodium retention in the kidneys.
Symptoms include moderate hypertension, constipation, muscle weakness, excessive urination, excessive thirst, headaches and personality changes. These do not necessarily appear in all individuals with the disorder.
Adrenal Gland Surgery is indicated when the disease results from an adenoma (tumor). In some patients the disease may be managed by dietary sodium restriction therapy with diuretics that block aldosterone’s actions. If you want a corona safe adrenal gland treatment contact us for more details.
