... I had a first and bad crisis in May 2004 resulting in an Addison's daignosis. I am now wondering if I really have Addison's or just got really sick. I looked back at coritsol levels in the hospital before any treatment and they were 4.5 and 2.4 . My T3 was 2.0 and T4 was 1.43. (I've had Graves disease and thyroid removed.) I had a scan and an MRI and was told I had... (1 replies)

... Chris, not that I know what I am talking about, but here is a stray thought regarding Lisa's nausea when irritated with the kids. If stress calls for more cortisol (as illness and emotional stress often prompt those with Addison's to take additional doses temporarily), perhaps Lisa's cortisol is being used up by her stress about her children's misbehavior, to the point that...

... Justine, You do need an emergency kit. If you are in a car wreck that really stresses you it could be a real need. If you get the flu with vomiting more than once or twice you should have a shot & go to the hospital for IV fluids. If emergency is called they do not have what you need & by the time you would be transported & they do blood draws at the hospital & all the... (6 replies)
... Hi Wanda, No emergency kit I had asked the doctor and he says I don't need one, which I find odd, but anyway he did mention adjusting my doses and the medical bracelet. Take Care Justine (6 replies)
... Hi guys, I went through the same thing when I was diagnosed with Addison's disease. Before diagnosis I was ~130 lbs. After 4 months of being untreated and misdiagnosed (they thought I had an ulcer), I lost ~30 lbs and ended up at ~100 lbs. After being diagnosed, my endo put my on 30mg Cortef and 0.1mg of Florinef. I ballooned and was 170 lbs by Christmas. After going... (4 replies)
... 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... (4 replies)
... I am having incredible sugar cravings. If I do not get any sugar when a craving is happening I get EXTREMELY tired and can barely function. I always have hard candy (annise and carmel apple suckers). I go through 2 bags of the suckers per week! I am sure that this has not helped with my weight gain (almost 15 lbs over 2 months). I am so fatigued. Last night I went to bed... (0 replies)
Adrenal Fatigue
Dec 22, 2004
... Thanks Chris! I will discuss the ACTH stim test with my doctor. I mainly wanted to find out if I'm barking up the wrong tree with normal cortisol levels despite symptoms and didn't want to confuse the issue with him if it wasn't warranted. The thing that always threw me off was that I don't have a tendency to lose weight, but I guess the thyroid problem explains that. ... (2 replies)
... I was diagnosised with Addison's in August of this year. I have been taking Predisone to try to balance me out. Anyway...Since the start of taking this medication I have gained 15 pounds and am now at my heaviest weight ever. My diet has not changed except a little added sugar due to massive cravings. I have even had to go buy new pants! How awful a feeling is that? I... (4 replies)

... As far as what hormones I'm taking, I am only taking Synthroid 200 mcg. I've never been on any cortef or prednisone so that's not a problem. I should tell you though that ANY medication I have ever had to take requires MUCH HIGHER doses than what most people require. ... (1 replies)
