Welcome to The Canadian Addison Society

Addison's Disease (Adrenal Insufficiency)
The number of people with Addison's Disease (Adrenal Insufficiency) varies with surveys in different countries depending on how these surveys are done, but in the United States, between 6 and 11 out of every 100,000 people will be diagnosed with this disease. The statistics are probably the same in Canada.

With this low prevalence of the disease, you may not have met anyone else who has this problem and it can be supportive to discuss your experience with others who have a similar problem.

We hope to help educate not only the medical society but also the public to aspects of the disease.

May and June Support Group Meetings

The local Support Group meetings listed below offer an opportunity to have personal contact with others who may have experienced the same problems as you are having, to obtain new ideas, and to have questions answered. It is a gathering place where those with Addison’s/Adrenal Insufficiency and their family members and friends can come together to exchange information and get ideas on how to cope. It is good to know that you are not alone.
