For patients with adrenal insufficiency, preventing acute adrenal crisis is the best way to maintain wellness. Doctors can provide more insight into your specific condition.
One way that patients with Addison’s disease (primary adrenal insufficiency) can prevent a crisis is to learn what stresses can trigger a crisis. Medical professionals may also recommend teaching patients to administer an emergency injection if needed. Taking prescribed medications regularly can avoid the need for emergency measures.
If a problem does occur, doctors at Florida Hospital recommend patients with preexisting conditions carry medical identification cards detailing their medications and dosages.
