More About the Adrenal System
The adrenal glands are vital because they produce a host of hormones like adrenaline and steroids like cortisol. These elements help keep the body in balance and manage a series of functions.
Cortisol is released as part of the stress response in dogs (and humans). It’s also a retort to low blood glucose concentration and helps the process of increasing blood sugar. It metabolizes fat, proteins and carbohydrates and aids in the suppression of the immune system.
Adrenaline is produced by the adrenal glands and is familiar to anyone with a pet or anyone with the slightest response to stressful situations. Its function helps the body cope with stress by doing little things like dilating the pupils, supplementing blood sugar levels and increasing blood flow to the muscles – all for the purpose of incapacitating whatever “danger” the body observes.
What is Cushing’s Disease? How do you diagnose Cushing’s?
With that in mind, Cushing’s disease occurs when the dog’s system produces too much cortisol. Also known as hyperadrenocorticism, this condition is most common in older dogs and involves an “overcharging” of adrenal gland function. This is often caused by a benign tumor on the pituitary gland.
There are a number of symptoms that help diagnose Cushing’s disease in dogs, including but remember that not all the symptoms may be present:
- a change in a dog’s bathroom habits such as excessive urination
- excessive thirst
- weight gain
- hair loss
- lack of energy
- sagging belly
