Unhappy Addison's Disease

I really need help desperately. My BF has Addison's disease and was diagnosed 10 years ago. His is from Belgium by the way. He was been seeing lots of doctors since then and no once can seem to help him out. His feeling worst and he does not feel any improvement. Were researching online to find a specialist in the USA. Can someone please refer a specialist here in the USA that can help please. I did read a post about specialist in Texas but for some reason i could not reply or write to that post. Can someone please help us find a good doctor. Thank you all so much.

Any where in the USA that has specialist that can help. To actually do all he can to find the cause and the cure or some kind of treatment. The only reason why i say Texas is because based on my google search's it always comes down to Texas. Thank you i really appreciate the help.

Re: Addison's Disease

Yes he was diagnosed 10 years ago and he has been through so many doctors and he also has tried all different kind of medications prescribed by his doctors but it makes him feel worst each time he takes new meds. Yes we will be meeting up in the states for whoever this doctor is. Based on research online a dr. sharma from baylor sounds promising and then i also found some good feedback about doctors in john hopkins. THank you so much and we are looking forward to hearing some good news from your friend. We just really want some kind of real answer and treatment. He has spent over 15k seeing doctors and trying all sort of medications and it seems his getting worst. Thank you again and i shall await your reply. God bless!
