Adrenaline Gland Disorders
How can I boost my adrenaline glands while taking 5 milligrams of prednisone? I am fatigued and I have stills disease and high blood pressure.
You can't: You simply need to comply with your prednisone. Your adrenal cortices will regenerate normally when you are able to go off your medication. Loss of adrenal cortical hormones isn't the cause of your fatigue. Perhaps you will be a candidate for some other treatment for whatever form of Still's you have. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What type?: Often the radiologist can tell that a particular spot on the liver is a hemangioma, focal nodular sclerosis, a bile duct hamartoma, or something else harmless.

My doctor said he saw a 20cm growth on my adreneline gland. He suggested a CT scan.Should i get one or not? Just need to know soon
I : I agree with dr. Fowler. 20 cm is a very large mass. Are you sure it wasn't 20 mm? That would be much more typical for an adrenal mass. Most adrenal masses are benign, but not all.

Can someone have a disorder involving adrenaline production? What would that "look" like? What is it called?

The blood pressure is difficult to control and can be made worse by beta-blockers like toprol and inderal. ...Read more
