hypothalamus

in the brain. Disorders of the Adrenal glands can either make the glands over produce or under produce hormones. Disorders include

Cushing’s Syndrome

,

Addison’s Disease

and

(CAH). An adrenal disorder can also be caused by

adrenal tumours

. An

endocrinologist

and

specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and management of adrenal disorders. Imaging scans such as

,

MRI

and

scans are used to view the adrenal glands.
