Help us get information about Adrenal Insufficiency into the hands of those who need it most. We have kits about the signs, symptoms and treatment of Adrenal Crisis available for School Nurses and EMS/ER personnel. In addition, we've developed flyers for Endocrinologists and other treating physicians to hand out to their patients. Many with AI feel alone and misunderstood, our hope is to reach these individuals, through the flyers, and offer our support. We offer this information free of charge, but can't do that without your help. Please help us spread the word with your donation of $25 or more.

Those who are Adrenal Insufficient don’t produce enough cortisol, a hormone we would die without. So just as a diabetic must take insulin to live, those with Adrenal Insufficiency must to take daily replacements cortisol.

In addition, during illness, after an injury, or during extreme emotional stress extra cortisol must be taken. In people without adrenal insufficiency the body naturally produces up to 10X the normal amount of cortisol during times of physical/emotional stress. That extra cortisol helps to maintain the body’s functions until the illness is over or the injury is treated. Since someone with Adrenal Insufficiency can’t produce enough cortisol, they can suffer disability and death if they are not given their glucocorticoid injection immediately. Most Ambulance companies, Hosptials, and Urgent Care facilities do not have protocols that include the injection of this live saving drug....We need your help to change that! Donate $25 or more and receive a free pin to wear so you can show your support for Adrenal Insufficiency.
