One thought on “Announcement! The Future of Cortisol Replacement is here.”

  1. I’m on a pump and the process was continual appeals. It was grueling for the fact they coined the notion that the “ INFUSION PUMP “ was for diabetes only.

    Not so. It’s to be used to infuse the body of whatever your Dr prescribes. I’m so glad they proved it was beneficial to the life of the Adrenal Insufficiency patient

    Winslow makes a great advocate because she makes her books understandable to all.

    Good luck and happy pumping!
