Online Survey for Adrenal Insufficiency

Eric Fiedler, founder and co-leader of the Baltimore/D.C. Addison's Support Group, is conducting a survey of adrenal insufficient (Addison's disease and secondary adrenal insufficiency) patients.


Eric is a senior at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, working toward degrees in neuroscience. This survey is being used as Eric's Undergraduate Research Project. He has the backing of Johns Hopkins University and is conducting the survey under the supervision of Dr. Roberto Salvatori.


Dr. Salvatori is an endocrinologist at Johns Hopkins University who specializes in adrenal and pituitary diseases. He also is one of the foremost researchers in adrenal disease as well as control of growth hormone secretion, genetic causes of growth hormone deficiency, consequences of growth hormone deficiency.


Access Eric's survey here "Qualitative Study on Cushingoid Syndrome Associated with Corticosteroid Replacement Therapy" or on the NADF Website (www.nadf.us).


The survey should be completed by patients who have adrenal insufficiency, with the exclusion of those who have adrenal insufficiency due to adrenoleukodystrophy, adrenomyeloneuropathy, congenital adrenal hyperplasia (all types) and/or AIDS.
