The adrenal glands are located at the top of each kidney. They produce hormones that are vital to your body's functioning, such as sex hormones and the stress hormone cortisol. Adrenal disorders are a result of these glands producing too much or not enough of those hormones.

At Pediatric Endocrinology Associates our Doctors can diagnose and treat adrenal disorders.

Some of the adrenal disorders we treat include:

Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia:- A defect in the pathway regulating cortisol, aldosterone, and sex hormones which may cause male sex characteristics to appear either early or inappropriately.

Adrenal Insufficiency (Addison's disease or congenital adrenal hypoplasia)- The adrenal glands produce insufficient hormones, usually caused by an autoimmune disorder.

Cushing's Syndrome (adrenal hyperactivity)- Adrenal glands produce too much cortisol, caused by a hormone producing tumor.
