Pediatric endocrinology - Addison's Disease

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Addison's disease is a condition in which a child has an underactive adrenal gland, reducing the production of adrenal corticosteroid hormones. 

Symptoms of Addison's disease may include weakness, fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea, dehydration, and skin changes. 

Marshfield Clinic Pediatric Endocrinology specialists are experts in diagnosis and treatment of this condition.​

Treatment

Hormone replacement therapy
Commonly, this condition is relieved by replacement of the reduced level of corticosteroid hormones. Your physician may prescribe hydrocortisone, prednisone or fludrocortisone.​​
