Cortisol may be the only hormone that's deficient.
Normally, the adrenal glands produce two to three times the usual amount of cortisol in response to physical stress.
This occurs when your body is exposed to high levels of the hormone cortisol.
These new symptoms were concerning for abnormal cortisol secretion and further hormonal evaluation was performed.
The most common hormones that can be over-secreted are aldosterone and cortisol from the cortex and adrenalin hormones from the medulla.
Cortisol is lowered further during an infection or physical stress.
Cortisol also curbs functions that would be nonessential or detrimental in a fight-or-flight situation.
Some hormones that are produced by neuroendocrine cells are cortisol, histamine, insulin and serotonin.
