  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    The renin-angiotensin system stimulates aldosterone release. Increased potassium stimulates aldosterone production, and decreased potassium inhibits production.[] Thereafter, she developed a swollen face, had unexplained weight gain, and fatigue. Cosyntropin stimulation test was positive for adrenal insufficiency.[] MA has also been used to promote weight gain in malnourished elderly patients, in patients with immunodeficiency virus and in cancer-induced cachexia.[]

  • Adrenal Cortex Hormone

    Aldosterone increases the activity of several mitochondrial enzymes.[] Too much cortisol from any cause leads to Cushing’s syndrome; the symptoms and signs of which include redistribution of fat to the face, upper back and abdomen, weight gain[] The newer study of daily versus weekend-only prednisone showed that both groups gained weight.[]
