Living with Addison's disease an owner's manual for individuals with the condition


This guide has been co-written by Sarah Baker and Katherine White, members of the UK Addison’s Disease Self-Help Group, in collaboration with endocrinologist, Professor John Wass. It aims to provide you with sufficient information to allow you to work well with your doctors in fine-tuning steroid replacement therapy and in making informed choices about some of the practicalities of managing the condition.​


The Owner's manual was published in 2000, before the formation of the group’s Clinical Advisory Panel. It written by members of the ADSHG with guidance from Prof John Wass and remains a popular introduction to living with Addison’s.


Some of the medical information it was based on has been superseded by more recent research and many of the references it contains are now out of date. Current guidance on clinical best practice from the Addison's Clinical Advisory Panel (ACAP) can be found in the following publications which we encourage you to read alongside the owner's manual.

Useful information on day-to-day living with Addison’s can also be found in:
