Adrenal Glands and Your Health
Are you struggling to lose the last 10 pounds or so of body fat to get to your ideal weight?
Do you get tired in the afternoon?
Do you struggle with cravings for sugary foods like cake, cookies, donuts, ice cream, or pie?
The adrenal glands are located on the top of each kidney. The glands produce hormones that help the body control blood sugar, burn protein and fat, react to stressors like a major illness or injury, and regulate blood pressure. These glands are responsible for releasing different classes of hormones.
The outer part of the gland is the adrenal cortex. This gland produces the hormones cortisol and aldosterone.
The inner part of the gland is called the adrenal medulla. This glad produces the hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline.
These hormones control many important functions in the body:
- Controlling the “fight or flight” response to stress
- Maintaining metabolic processes, such as managing blood sugar levels and regulating inflammation
- Regulating the balance of salt and water
- Maintaining pregnancy
- Initiating and controlling sexual maturation during childhood and puberty
The adrenal glands are also an important source of sex steroids. Estrogen and testosterone are the two main sex steroids. Getting these hormones balanced is very important for your health.
If the adrenal glands produce too many hormones, symptoms may include:
- High blood sugars
- High blood pressure
- Muscle and bone weakness
- Moodiness, irritability, or depression
- Slow growth rates in children
