In brief: 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.

In brief: Adrenal crisis
These are the triggers for an adrenal crisis.
Dehydration, infection and other physical stress, injury to the adrenal or pituitary gland, stopping treatment with steroids such as Prednisone or Hydrocortisone quickly or too early, surgery, trauma. Avoiding these may help prevent an adrenal crisis.
