Addison's disease is a rare condition, little known to the general public, that receives only occasional media attention. In this media section, we provide resources, explain how we assist media enquiries where we can, and list the ADSHG's past press releases.

In July 2015, The Times provoked controversy about Addison's and steroid-dependency when it published an advice column offering suggested guidance for a steroid dependent pituitary patient. The ADSHG had serious concerns about the advice this column gave, in particular its assertion that the gentleman in question should reduce his steroid dose and the suggestion of a link between Addison’s and mental health problems. Below, we republish the letter to the Editor, written in response by the Chair of the ADSHG's Clinical Advisory Panel, Prof John Wass, and an in-depth commentary from the ADSHG's newsletter to members.
