A person who has adrenal insufficiency should always carry identification stating his or her condition in case of an emergency. The card should alert emergency personnel about the need to inject 100 mg of cortisol if its bearer is found severely injured or unable to answer questions. The card should also include the doctors name and telephone number and the name and telephone number of the nearest relative to be notified. When traveling, it is important to have a needle, syringe, and an injectable form of cortisol for emergencies. A person with Addisons disease also should know how to increase medication during periods of stress or mild upper respiratory infections. Immediate medical attention is needed when severe infections or vomiting or diarrhea occur. These conditions can precipitate an addisonian crisis. A patient who is vomiting may require injections of hydrocortisone.
I became lethargic, literally, every afternoon. I homeschool my children and this was depressing. I remembered that I had done a hormone/saliva test a couple of years back. My adrenals were not working like they should. I have done some things to improve my situation but had not addressed the adrenal's specifically. I am a huge fan of Ann Louise Gittleman, I think she is the most brilliant nutritionist in existence. I ordered two bottles of the adrenal support and they worked immediately. I started with the double dose and am down to a single dose and it has worked, amazingly well. Thank you Ann Louise for your commitment to health!!!
