Addisons Disease

Addisons disease (also chronic adrenal insufficiency, hypocortisolism and hypocorticism) is a rare endocrine disorder wherein the adrenal glands produce insufficient steroid hormones (glucocorticoids and often mineralocorticoids). It is generally diagnosed via blood tests and medical imaging.
Treatment involves replacing the absent hormones (oral hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone). Regular follow-up treatment and monitoring for other health problems is necessary.

The symptoms of Addison's disease develop insidiously, and it may take some time to be recognized. The most common symptoms are fatigue, lightheadedness upon standing or while upright, muscle weakness, fever, weight loss, difficulty in standing up, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, sweating, changes in mood and personality, and joint and muscle pains.
Some have marked cravings for salt or salty foods due to the urinary losses of sodium. Affected individuals may note increased tanning since adrenal insufficiency is manifested in the skin primarily by hyperpigmentation.
