Addison's Disease
In 70% of people with Addison's disease the adrenal glands are being attacked by their bodies antibodies this means that they have an autoimmune condition.
Addison's disease is also called adrenal insufficiency or hypocortisolism.

We have 2 adrenal glands, 1 above each kidney. The outer layers of the adrenal glands make hormones needed by the body - cortisol and aldosterone. The gradual destruction of the outer layers during the disease means adrenal glands do not produce enough of the hormone cortisol and, in some cases, the hormone aldosterone.
