In brief: Yes absolutely.

Although rare, addison's does present in teens.
If there is a family history of autoimmune diseases, this is even more likely. Addison's can be a life threatening illness, so if you have concerns, please speak to your doctor soon. Signs and symptoms can be non-specific and include fatigue and weakness, but what sets addison's apart is the accompanying skin changes and blood test abnormalities.
