With adrenal gland disorders, your glands either make too little or too much of a hormone. Two of the most important adrenal hormones are aldosterone and cortisol. With Addison’s disease, there is too little cortisol and, often, too little aldosterone as well. In Cushing’s syndrome, there’s too much cortisol. General causes of adrenal disorders include:
- A problem with the pituitary gland
- Certain medications
- Genetic mutations
- Tumors, including pheochromocytomas
When you have too little or too much of thyroid hormone, you may experience weight gain or loss and fatigue. Our specialists are here to help you balance your thyroid hormone levels and treat thyroid growths, thyroid cancer and swollen glands.
