Re: Addison's and Pregnancy ???

i have had the exact same questions for a while. my endocrinologist has never treated a pregnant woman before, and I think it's pretty rare to find someone with experience in treating Addison's whether an OBGYN or endo. everything i've read suggests you have the right idea - IV steroids during labor and delivery. preventing dehydration and vomiting is also important while pregnant, seems like it could be a real problem with addison's. if you find anything else out, would you post it please?
