In brief: Yes

There are many different types of cah.
They cannot be cured - but the side effects of each - hyper or hypotension, hirsutism or virilization, etc can all be controlled by blocking the over or underactivity of the pathway steroids leading to cortisol, aldosterone and sex hormone production.
