Info about Adrenal Insufficiency

When the adrenal glands stop making certain kinds of hormones, insufficiency results. This leads to a variety of symptoms, depending on the type of adrenal insufficiency a person has: primary (also called Addison's disease) or secondary. Adrenal insufficiency affects people of all ages, both men and women.
 
There are different causes of adrenal insufficiency, but one of the most common is an autoimmune disease. And while this condition can be difficult to diagnose in the early stages, certain tests are available to help make a diagnosis.
