... Always have addisons?
People with Addison’s disease will have to get treatment for the rest of their lives. Treatments, such as hormone replacement medications, will make symptoms more manageable.
Your treatment will depend on what is causing your condition. Your doctor may prescribe medications that regulate the adrenal gland.
Following the treatment plan that your doctor creates for you is very important. Untreated Addison’s disease can lead to an Addisonian crisis.
If your condition has gone untreated for too long, and has progressed to a life-threatening condition called Addisonian crisis, your physician may prescribe medication to treat that first. Addisonian crisis causes low blood pressure, high potassium in the blood, and low blood sugar levels.
You may need to take a combination of glucocorticoids medications (drugs that stop inflammation) to improve your health. These medications will be taken for the rest of your life and you cannot miss a dose.
Hormone replacements may be prescribed to replace hormones that your adrenal glands are not making.
