Primary macronodular adrenal hyperplasia

Multiple lumps in the adrenal glands, which are small hormone-producing glands located on the top of each kidney, are a characteristic of primary macronodular hyperplasia. Cortisol is a key hormone that reduces inflammation and shields the body from physical stress such as pneumonia or trauma, which can be characterized by various methods, including raising blood sugar levels. However, some people with PMAH do not have these signs and symptoms and are believed to have subclinical Cushing syndrome.
