Endocrine Facts and Figures

The adrenal glands are commonly studied in the context of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis because these glands collectively produce hormones that affect each other, and regulate a variety of physiological processes. Indeed, the adrenal glands can release four types of hormones in response to physiological stimuli: glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, cathecholamines, and adrenal androgens.

This report, from 2016, presents available data on the epidemiology, cost burden, key trends on diagnosis and treatment, and health outcomes of adrenal insufficiency, Cushing's Disease, and Cushing's Syndrome.
