Adrenal glands are located at the top of both of your kidneys.
They are orange in color, triangular shaped, and are a type of endocrine gland that measures about 3 inches long and one-half inch in height.
An adrenal gland disorder means the adrenal glands aren’t working properly.
Sometimes this is due to a problem with the adrenal gland, and sometimes the problem is actually in another gland that is supposed to help regulate the adrenal gland.
There are several types of adrenal gland diseases, or disorders. One type includes adrenal deficiencies, or conditions that interfere with the normal functioning of the adrenal glands.
The adrenal gland can over react, or under react. The trick is to keep it functioning just right. If you have an adrenal problem, it is important to understand that if it goes untreated, it could kill you.
Adrenal disorder symptoms can be fatigue, low blood pressure, weight loss, nausea, dizziness, and poor appetite.

Using a holistic health practitioner to guide you in making the right choices for your adrenal health, might be a wise choice. There are many herbal remedies that can help you maintain your adrenals, but it may be hard to figure out which one is right for you.
