Question guys with addisons disease.

i recently went too the hospital over something other than addisons. i was treated by a young male doctor. out of the blue he goes,' addisons disease, depression , anxiety. it could be all tied together by low testosterone.' in my mind i was thinking,'this guy is a quack.' he came back,'yes your testosterone levels are low.'

is this guy onto a major breakthrough for treating addisons disease or just trying to load me up on more meds? any opinions or ideas are appreciated.

Re: guys with addisons disease.

I have read that President Kennedy (famous Addisonian) was also on a regimen of Testosterone, in addition to his other medications.

In researching this for my son, I have also read that some with Addisons occasionally supplement with pregnenolone or DHEA - but with caution.

I hope that you are regularly seeing an Endocrinologist, and these test results and questions should be discussed with your Endo.
