testing for Addisons while on Prednisone
Hi, I am on Prednisone 10mg daily for other autoimmune disease (lupus and RA) and have often wondered if I have Addison's as well. Is it possible to do hormonal testing for adrenal insufficiency on Prednisone, or would the results be invalid? I guess an alternative would be to have anti-adrenal antibodies tested, as the Prednisone might not affect those as much as the hormone levels. I cannot go off Prednisone for testing!
