Adyson Disease

Were you looking for information about Addison's Disease? Adyson disease is a common misspelling of Addison's disease.
Addison's disease is a condition that affects the adrenal glands. This condition results when the adrenal glands stop producing hormones that are important for certain bodily functions. In most cases, the disease is caused when the immune system attacks the adrenal cortex. However, other causes may include tuberculosis, chronic infection, or surgical removal of the adrenal glands. Possible symptoms of Addison's disease may include weight loss, muscle weakness, fatigue, and sometimes darkening of the skin in both exposed and non-exposed parts of the body.
