Addison's Disease Message Board

Addison's Disease Board Index

What was your ACTH? High, low, or normal. The cortisol result show you are adrenal insufficient. The addition of the ACTH would tell you if it is primary or secondary in nature. If primary. You will need to take hydrocortisone tablets. If secondary.. they will try and boost the ACTH first to make your adrenals function accordingly. If cortisol stays low.. then they will add cortisol supplementation as well.

I am primary adrenal insufficient. My adrenal glands were killed by and AI. So it is just HC tablets for me. ;) 20 mg distributed over the mornin and early afternoon is the standard starting treatment. More may be overwhelming to you.
