Adrenal Gland

How do medications treat adrenal gland disorders?

A Answers (1)

  • Medications treat adrenal gland disorders by replacing the cortisol and other hormones normally produced by the adrenal glands with synthetic hormones. IV fluids and other treatments may be administered to treat the initial symptoms of adrenal gland disorders, but hormone replacement medications are often necessary in the long term. Other medications, like insulin, might be needed to treat the complications of adrenal gland disorders.
