Damaged adrenal glands cause Addison's disease. With the disease, glands can't produce a sufficient amount of the essential hormone cortisol. In some case, they also fail to produce aldosterone. Located above the kidneys, the adrenal glands belong to the endocrine system. This system produces hormones for all bodily organs and tissues. If you have any of the symptoms of Addison's disease, see a doctor immediately.
