I am to begin taking cortef (hydrocortisone) at moderate dose, prob for a couple years at least. What can I do to protect my health and what should I look out for?
I'd recommend: U follow up with your dr and endocrinologist who should closely monitor your pituitary and adrenal status. It's a sensitive issue to maintain and taper off someone on chronic steroid use.

Does low dose cortef (hydrocortisone) heal the adrenals, helping the patient to feel well again and enabling them to eventually go off the drug? Non-addison's.
No: Taking any dose of steroid causes the adrenal glands to work less, as the pituitary gland regulates your adrenal hormone level. If your adrenal glands truly do not work, you need lifelong adrenal hormone replacement. However, i see people who have been diagnosed with "adrenal fatigue". This is not a true medical diagnosis. Most of these people have no adrenal problem at all. ...Read more
