What is the prognosis for someone with Addison's Disease?
Persons in the throes of an Addisonian crisis should get immediate emergency treatment, but it is generally not fatal. With proper treatment, a person with Addison's can lead a pretty normal life, but everyday precautions must be made. You can google it and find tons of info.
I have Type 2 Addisons, which means I also have Diabetes and Hypothyroidism. My symptoms when I was first diagnosed with Addisons was that I drastically lost weight, turned jaundice in color, and couldn't eat for an entire month. I would get sick quite often, and my doctors prognosis was constantly an eating disorder. I was very dehydrated, and my cortisol blood levels were low. My potassium and iron levels also drastically changed.
There are many directions that the disease can affect a person. Other medical conditions, general health and age can all be factors to the course of the disease. It would be almost impossible for someone to give a finite prognosis without knowing the other factors. Do some research on the disease and the ways you can counter the effects by exercise and diet.
