    Could be Cushing's or Conn's. Cushing's is hypercortisolism, and Conn's is hyperaldosteronism. (Both cortisol and aldosterone are secreted by the adrenals).

    I think Cushing's is an increase in the adrenal corticoid hormones. Pheochromocytoma is an increase in epi & nor epi (catacholamines). (that was on my final today :spin
