Adrenal glands are located on the top of the kidneys and help to control sex hormones and cortisol, the hormone that regulates how a person responds to stress and helps balance blood pressure and salt and water intake.
Adrenal disorders occur when the adrenal glands make too much or too little of these hormones.
Duke’s specialists provide the highest-quality care for conditions of the adrenal glands, including:
Our endocrinologists employ a number of tools to accurately diagnose adrenal disorders and then form a comprehensive treatment plan based on the nature of the disorder and the patient's overall health.
Duke offers the full spectrum of treatment for endocrine disorders including the latest medications, radiation therapy, radioisotopes, or surgery, when appropriate.
