AD / Pregnancy
Feb 1, 2007
... What I have read and have experienced is that it is almost impossible to get pregnant if you have Addison's disease or thyroid disease and you are not under treatment. Once I was diagnosed (first with Hashimoto) and then appx a year later with AD, I got pregnant. It took about 7 months. Prior to being on cortef, florinef & synthroid, I never even came close to having a... (3 replies)

I was in and out of... (7 replies)

... son's, aldosterone is low and I don't know how that would fit with your now LOW potassium but most primary Addisonians have to take Florinef in addition to their cortef to control their fluid balance and electrolytes. That may be something to look into if you haven't already. ... (1 replies)
... ally, I mentioned to the endo about my passing out..And finally they determined by adrenals were not functioning. So that endo speculates that what I had during pregnancy was a blood clot that went to the adrenal gland and stroked it out. ... (0 replies)
... A few things first: 1. Who is prescribing you medication if you've self-diagnosed? If you have true Addison's, you'll need more than Cortef, usually. The reason I ask is that you need to get your ACTH down. It'll be more difficult to treat if you don't have your hormones balanced. 2. I have hyperpigmentation called melasma (chloasma), but it's caused by other... (7 replies)
