Addison’s is a rare disease affecting adrenal gland function and can be life threatening. It affects approximately 1 in 10,000 people, meaning an estimated 300 – 350 new cases are diagnosed each year across the UK, this makes it roughly 300 times rarer than diabetes.

The ADSHG supports the Addison’s community and their healthcare providers to promote better medical understanding of this rare condition, campaign for and support everyone affected by adrenal failure, and fund vital research. The ADSHG now works in co-operation with some of the UK’s leading adrenal specialists to promote broader medical understanding and effective management of this rare condition.
