Adisson Disease

Were you looking for information about Addison's Disease? Adisson disease is a common misspelling of Addison's disease.
Addison's disease is a type of disorder that occurs when the adrenal glands fail to produce certain hormones necessary for the body to function properly. As a result, this disorder can cause symptoms such as weight loss, muscle weakness, fatigue, and sometimes darkening of the skin in both exposed and non-exposed parts of the body. The most common cause of Addison's disease is an autoimmune problem. However, other causes may include tuberculosis and chronic infection. Although there is no cure for this disease, medications can help to treat and control the symptoms.
