May not be needed: The adrenal makes cortisol and adrenaline, which are stress hormones. People who are stressed out are sometimes persuaded that it’s the adrenal’s fault. This is usually not true. "adrenal fatigue" is often a fake diagnosis. Poor adrenal function is determined by an acth (cotrosyn) stim test, and not by measuring just one blood or saliva level. See an endocrinologist about this if necessary.

Absolutely!: Hi. You have 2 adrenal glands. If one has to be removed, don't worry, you'll do just fine with the one remaining! To your good health!
