were cut at half in the sagittal plane, dividing the organ into two hemi-adrenals, then hemi-adrenals were fixed in 10% formaldehyde solution and dehydrated in a series of ethanol in increasing concentrations (from 50 to 100%) and diaphanized by xylene for later inclusion in paraffin.
It was reported that adrenal

fatigue is the idea that the adrenal
glands, which are located on top of each kidney and produce the hormones Cortisol and adrenaline, among others, "exhaust," thus impacting hormone production and causing fatigue.
