addison's disease and male infertility
Hi, all. This is my first post. My 22 year old stepson was diagnosed with Addison's disease a couple of weeks ago after he had a crisis so severe that he presented to the hospital with a seizure. He had a battery of tests and was diagnosed. After I read the symptoms, it all made sense. There is one thing that concerns us. He was told that he will never have children. How could they already know this? I have read that males with Addison's may be sterile but I was just wondering why they would tell him that and if they could know that already?? He was on vacation and out of state when he was diagnosed so I am not sure what tests were performed, etc but I just wondered if they could possibly be sure that he is sterile. He was really upset by this news. Any insight would be helpful. Thank you!
