Addison’s Disease and Social Security Disability

more+
less-

A number of our Social Security Disability clients suffer from Addison’s disease. Individuals suffering from this disorder frequently experience the following symptoms: fatigue, dizziness, and muscle weakness with difficulty standing up.

The course of prescribed treatment can include hydrocortisone tablets or prednisone to replace missing cortisol, fludrocortisone to replace missing aldosterone. While not all individuals who have been diagnosed with Addison’s disease will be found disabled under Social Security rules, one source of information for people with Addison’s disease that we recommend is Addison’s Disease Research Today. Addison’s Disease Research Today is a monthly online journal summarizing recent findings on Addison’s disease.
