About this Publication

Addison's Disease Self Help group newsletter, issue 118, December 2014

 

Welcome to the winter 2014 newsletter. There is good news and bad news in this issue. The bad news is about the shortage of injectable liquid hydrocortisone – Efcortesol – as you can read on page 3. The rest of the newsletter is more positive, beginning with a diary exclusive from Nathan Gafuik, the 29-year old with Addison’s who led the Canadian gymnastics team at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games this summer.
