Adrenal Gland Disorders Treatment
The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system and are located on top of the kidneys, one on each side. The adrenal glands are vital for producing certain hormones that regulate many systems in the body, such as the cardiovascular, immune and metabolic systems. Adrenal gland disorders and diseases can impact the production of these crucial hormones. Danny Shouhed, M.D. is a board certified general surgeon that offers adrenal gland disorders treatment through his practice in Los Angeles and Santa Monica.
While small, the adrenal glands are crucial for producing glucocorticoids, androgens, mineralocorticoids and adrenaline. Adrenal gland disorders involve over or under production of these hormones, depending on the type of disorder. Since hormones like cortisol are necessary for life, disorders in the production and regulation of adrenal hormones can cause serious health concerns. Diagnosis and treatment of adrenal gland disorders require expertise in this specialty area, which Dr. Shouhed can provide at our medical clinic in LA.
