When someone is diagnosed with cortisol deficiency, they are faced with the task of not only replacing a life-sustaining hormone, but also replicating a failed body system 24-7, with no way to check serum cortisol levels outside of a lab.
Artificially managing cortisol is a complex task and is vital to quality of life. A patients personal cortisol needs may differ from day to day depending on physical, emotional and environmental stressors. Every day is a guessing game with cortisol deficiency.
It is our goal to provide access to and awareness of every possible resource to manage cortisol deficiency and help patients not only survive this disease, but thrive despite it’s challenges.
