How do I know if I have Addison's Disease?
If after looking at the symptoms listed in this blog, you feel you might have Addison's Disease, contact your doctor. There is a blood test which shows the level of cortisone in your body. If it is below a certain point, you are considered to have Addisons Disease. There is also a saliva test which shows your level of cortisone production at various times of the day. You don't have to wonder or argue with doctors or others. You can know definitely how your adrenal glands are doing and start the necessary treatment if you have this problem. If the production is low, you can begin making the changes you need to minimize the stress in your life and avoid possibly developing Addison's Disease. If your cortisone level is normal, then you can begin looking for other reasons for your illness.
