Re: Holistic Approach to Addison's?

I was diagnosed with Addison's almost 26 years ago and have no side effects from the medication. I recently asked my endocrinologist about the many listed side effects of cortisone and he said in our case (replacement) there should be no long term side effects. So far so good.

If you are not functioning properly you likely do not have enough cortisone in your body.
Get your levels too low and you will slip into crisis...When that happens you can turn septic in minutes. I have had it happen to me.
Please be very very careful.

There are other forms of cortisone to try if you are getting headaches.
Talk to your endocrinologist.

Best of luck!
