Each kidney is topped by a single adrenal gland responsible for releasing the hormones that control blood pressure, stress responses, blood sugar and male/female sex characteristics. Tumors, genetic conditions, infections and other disorders can cause the adrenal glands to release too much or too little hormone which can catastrophically disrupt the body’s functions.
Board-certified endocrinologists at UT Health are experts in diagnosing and treating all adrenal disorders. Our patients benefit from on-site lab testing and advanced imaging and scanning capabilities which provide the quick, accurate results our specialists use to develop effective treatment plans that are tailored to each patient’s specific health concerns.
Our customized treatment plans could include medicine, hormone therapies and surgical removal of tumors affecting the adrenal glands.
