Adrenal Crisis Emergency

My dear friend Janice was a 48-year-old in excellent health until 1999. She developed an upper respiratory infection, which became severe sudden onset of adult asthma. She was treated with large doses of prednisone over a year-long period. This caused her to develop a rare chronic disease – pituitary-adrenal gland insufficiency or secondary Addison’s disease. The occurrence is 1 out of 100,000. President Kennedy also had this disease.  Click on the following links to read more about Jan’s struggle with Addison’s Disease.
