In some cases
Most episodes of adrenal crises have a trigger, such as severe illness, injury, or surgery.
Once it is known that a person with adrenal insufficiency
(ai) has such one of these triggers present, or planned, giving high-dose steroids
can prevent adrenal crisis. Because such events can occur w/o warning, and a person w/ ai may not be able to tell docs about the ai, alert bracelets are recommended.
