In brief: Yes
Addison's disease is a disorder that occurs when the adrenal glands cannot produce their hormones.
The treatment is replacement of adrenal hormones. Usually corticosteroids (i.E prednisone, hydrocortisone) and mineralcorticoids (florinef). With hormone replacement therapy, most people with addison's disease will be able to lead normal lives but the treatment is lifelong.
