About Adrenal Insufficiency 

This is a condition in which the adrenal glands do not produce adequate amounts of steroid hormone, which regulates sodium conservation, potassium secretion, and water retention. Addison’s disease and congenital adrenal hyperplasia can manifest as adrenal insufficiency. If not treated, it may result in:

  • Changes in Mood and Personality
  • Depression
  • Extremely Low Blood Pressure
  • Kidney Failure
  • Profound Muscle Weakness and Fatigue
  • Severe Abdominal Pains
  • Shock 
  • Vomiting
  • Weight Loss

Shock can occur if the body is subjected to stress, such as an accident, injury, surgery, or severe infection. Death may quickly follow. During an adrenal crisis, low blood pressure, glucose and sodium, or high blood levels of potassium can be life-threatening. Standard therapy involves immediate IV injections of corticosteroids and large volumes of IV saline solution with dextrose, a type of sugar. This usually brings rapid improvement.

During an accident or medical catastrophe, emergency personnel may have to provide you with some life-saving treatment. A medical ID bracelet or dog tag that identifies your condition may prevent harmful treatments, which could save your life. If you are ever hurt or injured and not able to speak, a medical ID may be the only way first responders or doctors know of your conditions and how to treat you. We recommend your information include:

  • Name and date of birth
