Although CAH is a different condition to Addison's, the replacement of cortisol with glucocorticoids and the emergency care is common ground. We have been asked by many if we could help by providing some leaflets for those with Addison's.

Addison's is a condition that results in a deficiency of cortisol production and needs life sustaining replacement therapy with glucocorticoids. Cortisol deficiency in Addison's maybe derived through various causes, such as the failure of the adrenal glands or an autoimmune disorder and like other disorders where the production of cortisol is compromised the result is termed as 'Adrenal Insufficiency'.
