Adrenal Disorders

Adrenal GlandThe adrenal glands perform an array of tasks, from helping us respond to emotional and physical stressors to regulating blood pressure. They also balance our metabolic system by managing the way our body reacts to infections, allergies and lack of sleep. Hormones produced by the adrenal glands include cortisol, aldosterone, adrenaline and norepinephrine. A deficiency or excess of these hormones can be associated with an array of conditions and complications, including:
 
  • Addison’s disease
  • Adrenal cancer
  • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia
  • Conn’s syndrome
  • Cushing’s syndrome
  • Pheochromocytoma

At the USF Diabetes and Endocrinology Center, our specialists treat adrenal disorders that are often hard to diagnose. Our board certified endocrinologists take a multidisciplinary approach in addressing the needs of every patient and customizing each treatment plan.
