Adrenal Hypertension

Common Name(s)

Adrenal Hypertension

Adrenal hypertension is a consequence of several adrenal disorders. There are two adrenal glands, one on the top of each kidney. They are shaped like triangles, and each is about a ½ inch high and 3 inches long. The glands are part of a bodily system, which releases hormones into the blood system. Hormones are important in many body processes, including metabolism, sexual development and puberty, and stress. The adrenal gland is involved in the production of a variety of hormones and chemicals that influence blood pressure. Some of the disorders resulting in hypertension are Cushing’s syndrome, primary aldosteronism and pheochromocytoma.
