  12. solitary thyroid nodules
  13. pituitary tumors

  15. Addison’s disease (low levels of cortisol and aldosterone)
  16. benign tumors (fibroid) and cysts (fluid-filled sacks) that affect the endocrine glands
  17. congenital adrenal 16 hyperplasias (low levels of cortisol)
  18. endocrine gland injury
  19. severe allergic reactions or infections
  20. cancers that involve endocrine glands
  21. chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  22. hereditary pancreatitis
  23. Turner syndrome (females with only one functioning X chromosome)
  24. Prader-Willi syndrome
  25. anorexia
  26. phytoestrogens, naturally-occurring plant estrogens found in soy products
  27. exposure to toxins, pollutants, and endocrine-disrupting chemicals, including pesticides and herbicides.
