Endocrine Hypertension

Hypertension is defined as blood pressure that is higher than 140/90 mm Hg (or 130/80 mm Hg in patients with diabetes). There are two types of hypertension—primary and secondary (which includes endocrine hypertension). Most hypertension is the primary type or essential hypertension. Its cause is unknown, but genetics and risk factors such as eating high salt diet, being obese, smoking, alcohol, and certain medications contribute to it. Primary hypertension usually responds well to lifestyle changes and blood pressure medications. Secondary hypertension requires a different type of treatment and evaluation.

Endocrine Gland Cancers

Endocrine cancers are a mixed group of diseases in which cancer cells are found in tissues of the endocrine system, which includes the thyroid, adrenal, pancreas, parathyroid and pituitary glands.

Pituitary Disorders

Pituitary gland disorders can affect many different parts of the body. The deregulation can cause conditions such as acromegaly, Cushing's syndrome, hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), and hypogonadism (low sex hormone levels) all may result from pituitary gland disease.

Adrenal Disorders

The adrenal glands, located at the top of each kidney, produce hormones that help the body control blood sugar, burn protein and fat, react to stressors like a major illness or injury, and regulate blood pressure. Adrenal disorders can be caused by too much or too little of a particular hormone.
