I'm diagnosed with Addison's disease last week.
I'm a naval officer n last few months started to develop black pigmentation on my knuckles elbows and had slight light headedness. Consulted a endocrinologist n he advised few blood tests. The results were really shocking as my acth was 1064 and 8am cortisol was 6.35.Together with I had high 6.5 potassium ,1.7crestinine.So endocrinologist immediately put me on HISONE 10mg at 7am and 5mg at 4pm.He also referred me to nephrologist who put be on 100mcg of fludrocortisol. This week I'm feeling a little better. Another issue was of protein leak in my urine sample. But doctor didn't give much importance to this protein leak. Can some one kindly give some details regarding protein leak in urine. I hope my dark pigmentation will gradually become normal over a period of time with medication. Looking forward to hearing from you.Report this
