How to use "Adrenals" in context?
The adrenals are two small glands located just below the kidney on either side of the spine. Their main function is to produce hormones that help regulate the body's immune system, metabolism, and blood pressure.
The two main hormones produced by the adrenals are ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) and cortisol. ACTH is responsible for increasing the production of cortisol, while cortisol helps to regulate the body's blood sugar levels and physical activity.
The adrenals are also responsible for releasing other hormones including glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids.
