The National Adrenal Disease Foundation has been conducting a survey (link below) regarding your concerns about COVID-19 with adrenal insufficiency. Survey responses have provided excellent insight into concerns regarding COVID-19. Specifically, many people with adrenal insufficiency are worried that EMS, Emergency Room or hospital staff will not know how to treat them properly. To address this concern, NADF has created a one-page 'handout' document with medical staff instructions for adults and children. As always, the guidance provided in the document has been fully approved by our medical advisors. Download the PDF below for printing.

If you do find yourself in a situation where you have COVID-19 and need to go to the hospital, please don't hesitate to hand this to all medical personnel involved in your care.
