Thyroid Therapy Cause Adrenal Crisis
Great question!: Even people with adrenal problems often make a little bit of cortisol. This little bit can be enough to keep them from getting very sick.

Immediate steroid replacement is needed to reverse the above either via mouth (if the individual is stable and able to swallow) or via intra muscular/intravenous. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Life threatening: Your adrenal glands make hormones which help to maintain normal salt and sugar levels in your blood as well as normal blood pressure.
