Addison’s Disease

Addison’s Disease is an endocrine disorder in which there is adrenocortical insufficiency resulting due to functional disturbance or destruction of the adrenal cortex. This destructive process leads to glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid deficiency which presents either in chronic form or in acute addisonian crisis. The chronic form may manifests with symptoms of hyperpigmentation of skin and mucous membranes, fatigue, progressive weakness, postural dizziness, syncopy, GI symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and constipation), myalgias, impotence, decreased libido and amenorrhea.
