Understanding of hypertension
Xiang Xin’s syndrome
The adrenal glands also secrete a hormone, cortisol, and. The disease is called Cushing’s syndrome (i.e., an increase in cortisol). It is mainly treated by the Department of Endocrinology doctor (who is a specialist in the treatment of the disease). Cushing’s syndrome in addition to cause a rise in blood pressure, too much cortisol also caused by moon face, centripetal obesity (limbs thin, weak, ecchymosis, abdominal purple longitudinal lines) and menstrual disorders. The tumor on the pituitary gland may also trigger the Cushing’s syndrome. Sometimes the abnormal increase in the volume of the adrenal gland (Zeng Sheng) or a small adenoma is a factor in Cushing’s syndrome. The treatment of Cushing’s syndrome depends on the cause of the disease, which usually involves surgery, radiation therapy, or medical treatment, and the goal is to get the cortisol levels (and blood pressure) to return to normal.
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia
Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. If the developing fetus can not produce cortisol, the adrenal glands secrete a large amount of sexual stimulation and other chemicals. This can cause a variety of diseases, these diseases are collectively referred to as the congenital adrenal hyperplasia (hyperplasia is the organization of the abnormal increase, here is an abnormal adrenal gland enlargement). Congenital adrenal hyperplasia, the specific impact on the baby depends on the occurrence of the disease in pregnancy, baby girls have the possibility of abnormal development of the sexual organs, some of the newborn in the birth, the adrenal glands will immediately lose function. Fortunately, the treatment with the adrenal cortex hormone, can prevent the occurrence of this disease, and can make the baby normal growth and development.

Severe hypothyroidism is also known as mucinous. When the thyroid (located in the neck) stop play the function which lead to slower metabolism occurs thyroid function hypothyroidism, after suffering from hypothyroidism, the patient’s body will change slowly, including facial puffiness, hoarseness, speed slow, hair and skin becomes rough, dry, scaly. Other emerging symptoms include weight gain, memory decline, constipation, menstrual disorders and hypothermia. Although radiation therapy, surgery, certain drugs, and pituitary disease may affect thyroid function, it is not the main cause of the disease. Primary hypothyroidism (unexplained) is the most common type of disease, but no matter what the cause of hypothyroidism, should be treated with an alternative therapy.
Thyroid function hyperthyroidism
Hyperthyroidism is caused by excessive thyroid gland secretion of thyroid function hyperthyroidism. Thyroid goiter, thyroid goiter, and some other diseases are associated with hyperthyroidism. Thyroid function hyperfunction caused by a consequence is caused by adrenal excitement. This means that adrenaline and noradrenaline activity was increased, resulting in increased blood pressure. The symptoms of hyperthyroidism include weight loss, increased appetite, sweating and cold. In addition, the heart rate, such as 1 fast and tremor, may occur. The treatment of hyperthyroidism is mainly based on the cause of hyperthyroidism, the treatment method includes the use of radioactive iodine, drug treatment (including P a receptor blocker) and surgical treatment.
