In brief: Endocrine gland

The adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and their main function is to make hormones.
The adrenal glands make hormones in response to stress (cortisol, epinephrine), hormones that affect kidney function and blood pressure (aldosterone), and sex hormones (androgens). These hormones circulate all around the body to affect the target organs and tissues.
