Medical journal commentaries


  • The ADSHG has responded to a number of topical issues reported in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), The Lancet, and other medical publications over the years, regarding issues relating to patient care for those with adrenal insufficiency including access to medication, good clinical care and the trust-based nature of the doctor-patient relationship.

All of the charity's Rapid Responses have been accepted for inclusion on the BMJ's website, and two of its commentaries have been republished in the print edition, in shortened form. The Lancet has also accepted a past letter to the editor for publication in its print edition.


Here, we present links to the original Rapid Response commentaries as published on the BMJ website, and to the letter published by The Lancet.
