Adrenal insufficiency

Adrenal insufficiency - What it is

​Adrenal insufficiency results from a lack of hormones made by the adrenal glands, which are glands found above each kidney. These glands produce hormones called cortisol and aldosterone. These hormones are needed  to maintain a normal blood pressure, fluid and electrolyte balance, and blood sugar level, especially during  times of physical stress.
