Adrenal suppression with inhaled corticosteroids

Serum cortisol levels compared with placebo (mean nmol/l) were suppressed by fluticasone at doses of 1500 micrograms ( nmol/l) and 2000 micrograms ( nmol/l) and by budesonide at 2000 micrograms ( nmol/l). Fluticasone propionate 2000 micrograms produced lower absolute serum cortisol levels than budesonide 2000 micrograms (95% CI for difference to ). The dose ratio (geometric mean) for the relative potency was fold (95% CI to ). In terms of percentage suppression versus placebo, fluticasone propionate also produced greater effects (means and 95% CI for difference): budesonide 1600 micrograms () versus fluticasone propionate 1500 micrograms () (95% CI - to ), budesonide 2000 micrograms () versus fluticasone 2000 micrograms () (95% CI to ). Individual serum cortisol levels at the two highest doses showed 15 of 24 patients below the normal limit of the reference range (150 nmol/l) for fluticasone and five of 24 for budesonide. Fluticasone propionate also caused greater ACTH suppression than budesonide (as % versus placebo): budesonide 1600 micrograms () versus fluticasone propionate 1500 micrograms () (95% CI to ), budesonide 2000 micrograms () versus fluticasone propionate 2000 micrograms () (95% CI to ). For overnight 10 hour urinary cortisol (nmol/10 hours) there was a difference between the lowest doses of the two drugs: budesonide 400 micrograms () versus fluticasone propionate 500 micrograms () (95% CI to ).

Untreated, adrenal insufficiency is fatal, and indeed this was invariably the case until the advent of synthetic cortisone in 1949. Treatment of Addison's disease is lifelong. The prognosis for any patient with adrenal insufficiency will depend on the underlying cause. In those patients in whom the prognosis is not affected by the underlying pathology, replacement therapy should result in a return to health. However, a Norwegian study found an excess of mortality in patients diagnosed with Addison's disease at a young age, associated with acute adrenal failure, infection and sudden death. [ 16 ]

Heat and energy from the hands
and vibration from the voice
can revitalize the kidneys and adrenals,
reducing the negative effects of stress.
Visualization and Positive Suggestion: "I am toning and revitalizing my kidneys, adrenals, and my immune strength."
Shoulder Release Releases tension from pressure building points on the upper part of the shoulders. Tones, expands, and stimulates the thymus.
Visualization and Positive Suggestion:
"I am squeezing out tension and building a strong defense against disease."

MORE SUGGESTIONS Walking, trampoline exercise, martial arts for strengthening the various organs of the body, meditation and visualization, yoga and stress management all will have a complementary beneficial effect for adrenal rejuvenation. Rebound exercise on the mini-trampoline stimulates the lymph flow better than any other form of exercise.

Combined pituitary hormone deficiency (including ACTH deficiency) due to genetic pituitary abnormalities is rare. ACTH and cortisol deficiency have been described in patients with multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies due to mutations in the PROP-1 (Prophet of Pit-1) gene, even though PROP-1 is not expressed in corticotropes. The onset of cortisol deficiency, which may be severe, ranges from childhood to late adulthood [ 2-5 ]. Mutations in other transcription factors involved in early pituitary development (HESX1, LHX4) also can result in variable degrees of hypopituitarism that include ACTH deficiency [ 6,7 ]. (See "Causes of hypopituitarism", section on 'Genetic diseases' .)
