There is also secondary and tertiary, which deal with ACTH and HPA axis dysfunction, respectively. This... (3 replies)
... Hello! I have no adrenal glands at all. I had them both removed in March 2006. I know of many that live without adrenal glands. I had mine removed as I had a pituitary tumor and had surgery.
