About

Adrenal Insufficiency United (AIU) empowers the Adrenal Insufficient community through support, education advocacy, and collaboration. Adrenal insufficiency (AI) occurs when the body is unable to produce enough cortisol, a hormone which helps maintain essential functions such as blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart muscle tone. Just as a diabetic must take insulin, people with AI must take cortisol replacements to live. During times of stress our bodies need even more cortisol for these vital functions. Without enough cortisol, a life-threatening event called an adrenal crisis occurs. An adrenal crisis can quickly spiral into shock, heart failure, coma and death. In an adrenal crisis, until the cortisol levels are normalized with Solu-Cortef®, treatments for other issues won’t be effective.

Life is beautiful and the power of people is unstoppable!
