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.
