Addison's Disease Message Board

Addison's Disease Board Index

I am 24 years old and I was diagnosed with Addison's when I was 17 years old. Since then I have been on 30mg of Cortison a day, Florinef .75mg a day, and synthroid everyday for my hypothyroidism. I have gained a lot of weight too and I have no idea how to lose it. I have been going to Curves for four months at least three times a week and I have not lost a pound. My twin sister is also suffering from Addison's disease and was diagnosed around the same time. On December 16th 2004 my sister was hospitalized because she had an addison's crisis. This is obviously a serious and rare disease and it is hard to deal with it and all the side effects that come with it. Both my sister and I are desperate to feel better and also look better. We are in desperate need of help and we want to get healthy!! Please Help.
Hey guys may name is Marie and I have had addisons for 3 years and have ran the gambet of weight. When I strated this whole thing I was a nice 140 5'8" tall. I now weight 165 and that is the fatest I have ever been. i have not been able to work for the past 3 years due to complicatons and not handling stress verywell. My adreanals have started coming back and I have gotten off the steroids. I am taking supplements and doing some homopathic stuff trying to restart my adrenals. I am looking for a more natural way to deal with this problem. I know just what ya'll are going throgh. I fell so fat and unatractive. Still have alot of fatigue but I am tring to get to the gym everyday and burn som calories. Now my dr. say I am beging to have thyroid problems. Hypo. I have begun natural (armour) hormones for that. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Everyone hang in there. If anyone has any advise please post.

Please help us!!! I don't want to be fat the rest of my life.
