Adrenal glands (problems)
The adrenal glands are paired endocrine glands, located, as the name implies, above the kidneys. They perform several functions: if necessary, they release adrenaline, which activates the brain, accelerates heart rate and mobilizes sugar from the reserve, when the body needs additional energy. They secrete cortisone - a hormone that plays an important role in metabolism and has anti-inflammatory action. The adrenal glands also produce the hormones needed to maintain electrolyte balance in the body. The main disorders of the adrenal glands are their HYPHOFUNCTION and HYPERFUNCTION.
These glands connect the physical body of a person with its base, or sacral, chakra (energy center). The sacral chakra gives us the energy necessary to maintain faith in our Mother - the planet Earth, in her ability to satisfy all of our immediate needs, that is, all needs related to the sphere HAVE.
Impaired adrenal function suggests that a person experiences many unrealistic fears, mainly related to the material side of his life. He is afraid to make a mistake in choosing a direction. He is not confident enough in his ability to satisfy his material needs. He has too much imagination. He underestimates himself.
He is angry with himself, because he considers himself insufficiently courageous and dynamic.
Hyperfunction of the adrenal glands is a sign that the person is constantly on his guard, constantly alert, although usually the danger exists only in his imagination. He loses measure and consistency in his thoughts and actions. Hypofunction of the adrenal glands is manifested in those situations where a person does not realize the limits of his capabilities and brings himself to exhaustion. His glands are tired and want to relax. Hypofunction of the adrenal glands suggests that a person should relax and believe more in the Universe - She always takes care of the living beings that allow her to do so.
Your body wants you to stop believing that you have to satisfy your own needs and rely only on your mind - that is, on what you know today. You must understand that you also have your inner strength, your inner GOD, who knows all your needs much better than your mind knows them. By trusting in this power, you will receive everything you need. Instead of worrying forever, thank the world for what you have at the moment. Make contact with your inner strength - it will give you an impulse to move in the right direction.

Adrenal glands (problems)
- Adrenal glands
The adrenal glands are a paired organ and are located extraperitoneally at the upper poles of the kidney. Their weight is 4 g regardless of gender and body weight. The uniqueness of the blood supply to the adrenal glands is that each gland is supplied with the blood of three arteries - branches of the diaphragmatic artery with isolated veins one on each side (the right flows into the inferior hollow, the left into the renal). Cortical
- Adrenal glands
As already mentioned, the adrenal glands in newborns are relatively larger than in adults. The adrenal medulla of the newborn is very poorly developed and is almost indistinguishable in macroscopic examination. The cortex consists of two layers - the inner one, the darker one, and the outer one, the lighter one. The adrenal medulla is formed from the inner layer over time (A. F.
The adrenal gland (glandula suprarenalis) is a paired organ located in the retroperitoneal space directly above the upper end of the corresponding kidney. Its mass is 12–13 g, length 40–60 mm, width 2–8 mm. The adrenal gland has the form of a cone compressed from front to back, in which there are distinguished anterior, posterior and lower (renal) surfaces. Adrenal glands are located at the level of the XI — XII infants
- Adrenal Diseases and Pregnancy
Physiology of the adrenal glands The adrenal glands are paired organs of internal secretion, located above the upper poles of the kidneys at the level of the vertebrae from ThXI to L [. Have the appearance of vertically standing flat plates in the form of a pyramid or triangle. The average mass of both adrenal glands is 10–12 g. The dimensions are on average 4.5 x 2-3 cm, thickness 0.6–1 cm. The left adrenal gland is larger than the right one. Rudiments
- Adrenal pathology
Adrenal pathology is very diverse, but pheochromocytoma and Addison's disease are more common. Pheochromocytoma - a tumor of the medulla, leads to an increase in blood pressure (adrenaline and norepinephrine), patients die from bleeding in the brain. Addison's disease is caused by the hypofunction of the adrenal cortex, more often with its tuberculous lesion, less often with amyloidosis, cancer metastases,
- Adrenal insufficiency
1. Give a definition of adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal cortex insufficiency, or Addison's disease, is characterized by reduced production of glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids by the adrenal glands. The cause of the disease is a pathological process that directly affects the adrenal glands (primary hypoadrenocorticism) or the formation and secretion
- Adrenal glands
Physiology The adrenal glands secrete the cortex and medulla. The adrenal cortex is the source of three types of hormones: androgens, mineral-corticoids (for example, aldosterone) and glucocorticoids (for example, cortisol). In the medulla of the adrenal glands, catecholamines are produced (adrenaline, norepinephrine, dopamine). Adrenal androgens are not essential for anesthesia and
- Hyperfunction of the cortex of the adrenal glands
Hyperfunction of the adrenal cortex is a disease that occurs rarely in cats. It is caused by increased synthesis of the hormone cortisone, which leads to metabolic disorders and various pathological processes. The cause may be a tumor of the adrenal glands or pituitary gland. Symptoms: hair loss, swelling, possible liver failure. Treatment usually
The adrenal glands are located in the form of oval or bean-shaped cells medially and somewhat cranial to the kidneys. They develop from two primordia. The adrenal cortex arises from the epithelium of the splanchnomotomes of the mesoderm near the mesentery root, that is, from the same material as the sex glands and kidneys. The brain substance is formed from the material from which the sympathetic develops.
- Adrenal glands
The adrenal cortex produces more than 60 biologically active substances and tissue hormones of a steroid nature, which, by their effect on metabolic processes, are divided into glucocorticoids (cortisone, cortisol), mineralocorticoids (aldosterone, 11 - deoxycorticosterone), sex hormones - androgens (17-ketosteroids) and testosterone) and trace concentrations of female sex hormones -
- Congenital adrenal hypoplasia
Etiology The hereditary form associated with the X chromosome and caused by defects in the NR0B1 gene encoding a DAX1 transcription factor is most common. Pathogenesis DAX1 factor is necessary for laying the adrenal cortex and testicles, is involved in the regulation of the hypothalamogonadotrophic function. Clinical picture With a defect of factor DAX1 in boys, adrenal insufficiency occurs, clinically
- Anesthesia for adrenal surgery
Anesthetic management during interventions on the adrenal glands is classified as rather complicated. This is due not only to the fact that the adrenal glands produce hormones important for the course of many processes (gluco - and mineralocorticoids, catecholamines). Adrenal hormones have a significant impact on the state of the main vital functions and, above all, on the blood circulation, are involved in

The structural basis of steroids is the cyclopenten-perhydrophenanthrane core, consisting of three 6-carbon hexane rings and one 5-carbon pentane ring (D, in Fig. 325-1). Carbon atoms are numbered in sequence, starting from ring A
- Lipoid hyperplasia of the adrenal glands
Etiology At the heart of most cases of lipoid hyperplasia of the adrenal glands are defects of the STAR gene encoding the StAR protein. More rarely, the disease is caused by defects in the CYP11A1 gene encoding P450scc (steroid 20,22-desmolase). Both proteins are necessary for the implementation of the first stage of the biosynthesis of steroid hormones - the conversion of cholesterol into pregnenolone. When the lipoid hyperplasia of the adrenal glands occurs
- Congenital dysfunction of the adrenal cortex (adrenogenital syndrome)
Congenital dysfunction of the adrenal cortex is a group of diseases with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance, based on a defect in one of the transport proteins involved in the biosynthesis of cortisol by the adrenal cortex. In the pathogenesis of these conditions, a decrease in cortisol synthesis occurs, which leads to hyperproduction of ACTH, the development of adrenal hyperplasia and accumulation
