Adrenal Disease Prevention and Screening

Adrenal Disease Screening

Screening exams are important medical tests done when you’re healthy and don’t have symptoms. They help find disease at its earliest stage, when the chances for curing it are best.
If your family members have certain hereditary syndromes, your doctor may suggest gene testing or other screening tests to identify disorders as soon as possible.

Adrenal Disease Risk Factors

Certain inherited disorders can increase your risk of having an adrenal disease. These include:

Not everyone with these syndromes develops adrenal disease. However, if you or anyone in your family has one of these syndromes, your doctor may recommend genetic screening.
