The Addison’s Disease Self-Help Group is the support group for people with Addison’s disease or adrenal insufficiency and their families in the UK and Ireland. We aim to support our members and to promote better medical understanding of this rare condition, working in co-operation with leading adrenal specialists. We were founded 1984 and are a registered UK charity (no. 1106791). We are funded primarily through your subscriptions, donations and fundraising activities.
Your annual subscription directly supports those with Addison's through the charity's work and helps promote better medical understanding of this rare condition.
