Hi, I have been told that my son has very low cortosol levels and needs one 5mg tablet of hydracortasol for 2 day for times when he is unwell and if he is in a accident or is extremly unwell to give him emergency hydrocortasole injection asap. I have been shown how to use the injection and thank god I have never had to use it (touch wood)
When my son gets a common cold or a minor infection all hell breack lose we were being given hydrocortasol liquid that take 3 days to be made up by the chemist and the self life is only a month this means that i have to predict when my son was going to be unwell or it would be a trip to the a&e departemnt for a emergency prescription I have now been give hydrocortasol pellets that can be put in food or drink but if he is unwell he will not eat or drink. The consultant at the hospital has not given me much information she is either on leave or they can not find his
hospital notes. has he got addison diease? is this forever and does it get worse. i need some striaght forward information and does anyone else have a younge child in the same circumstance?
