      Yeah. I have a med alert dog tag. Says Addison's disease on front and on the back it says administer 120 mg of hydrocortisone immediately!

      Have it written down what you take and how much.Allergies as well. Your doctors name if any questions.Take someone with you to the hospital. Very difficult by yourself. I take some steroids and injection kit away from home. If you don't have a emergency dose for injection ask for one.Anti inflammatory diet helps me alot. Also write down all your meds and natural things you take.

      You wear a bracelet or necklace with the words “adrenal insufficient” that way a paramedic would know you need cortisol. Without it in an emergency it could kill you.
